IFP leaders in high spirits ahead of local government elections:

The IFP leader says his party has a track record of integrity.

He says having various commissions resulting in recommendations is not enough.

“For years the IFP has been calling for a specialised corruption court to deal with transgressions of the Public Finance Management Act (PFMA), Municipal Finance Management Act (MFMA) and other national treasury regulations as well as treasury transgressions identified by the Auditor General throughout our three spheres of government.”

“We will keep pushing for this so that in the end South Africa will see convictions instead of endless commissions of inquiries and recommendations report that are left to gather dust,” he adds.
