Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) leader Velenkosini Hlabisa is expected to pay a courtesy visit to Bapedi kingdom at the Tjate Third Palace in Mohlaletsi outside Jane Furse in Limpopo.

Hlabisa and the party’s national chairperson Blessed Gwala will meet Acting Queen Manyaku Thulare of the Bapedi Kingdom.

The IFP is trying to make inroads into the province ahead of the Local Government Elections.

The royal family spokesperson, Ntoampi Mampuru, says they’re happy to receive a delegation from the party.

“When the IFP initiated this visit we welcomed it but we welcome it as the visit by the IFP, not the IFP coming to campaign but coming to the Royal Kingdom to say or give whatever they have. They are here for two things one to deliver or convey a message from their ….president Chief Mangosuthu Buthelezi who had a long-standing relationship with the Bapedi kingdom.”
