Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) leader, Mangosuthu Buthelezi and other senior party leaders are criss-crossing KwaZulu-Natal in the IFP’s Sizonqoba election bus to encourage people to vote in the May 8 general elections.

IFP election manager, Narend Singh, says they started in Durban on Monday, and moved to the South Coast and Port Shepstone.

On Tuesday, the campaign started in Pietermaritzburg and moved to the Midlands. On Wednesday the bus trip will start in Empangeni in on the north coast.

Singh says the bus stops at strategic points will allow leaders to interact with voters.

“We implore on people to go out and vote on the 8th of May. We explain to them the importance of voting. So far, we started yesterday, and I must say it’s gone extremely well in the southern parts of KwaZulu-Natal,” says Singh.
