The National Freedom Party (NFP) says should it be voted into power, it will put the Matatiele Municipality back under KwaZulu-Natal from the Eastern Cape.
That is according to NFP national organiser, Bonga Nzuza, who was addressing hundreds of communities. Nzuza says people are still disappointment with the 2006 Demarcations Board’s decision that placed Matatiele under the Eastern Cape and yet the area has been getting its basic services from KwaZulu-Natal.
“I am here because I got an invitation from the community of Eastern Cape, they say they are not happy at all with the decision that was taken by demarcation board. They say they regard themselves as people of KZN, so the NFP is here to engage them so that when we get power we will be able to reverse the decision of the demarcation board and fight for their rights and put Matatiele where it belongs,” adds Nzuza.
ANC chairperson say that the policies of opposition parties lack substance
Meanwhile, African National Congress (ANC) chairperson Baleka Mbete has told thousands of congregants of the Bantu Church of Christ, that the policies of opposition parties lack substance. She gave a message of support to the church which is currently celebrating 100 years of existence.
The church was formed in 1914 and currently has two point five million members. Congregants from all over the country, led by their Bishop John Bolana gathered at the OR Tambo Hall in Khayelitsha on the Cape Flats for the Easter service.
Mbete says, “Opposition parties don’t have policies. They don’t bring anything new, because the ANC policies are the correct ones. They come from the ground, they are informed by the needs and the aspirations of our people. They are based of the values given to us in 1912.”
