IFPYB: ANCKZN Has Lost the Plot, Again

They say desperate times call for desperate measures. 

We have seen the ANC in KZN behave badly, but with only 14 days to go until Special Votes open in the Province, the ANC in KwaZulu-Natal has reached a new, all-time low today.

Faced with the reality that come 29 May 2024, the once proud liberation movement will be voted out of power, it has attempted through its Mzala Nxumalo region, to brand the IFP and its partner in governance, the DA, corrupt.

Firstly, we think the ANC needs a bit of financial literacy training. 

Unauthorised, irregular or fruitless and wasteful expenditure is not an indicator of corruption. It can relate to something as small as a hotel no-show or basic documentation not being in place.

Should the IFP then - if we use the same flawed, obtuse, ANC logic - rush to brand the entire ANC KZN corrupt as the eThekwini municipality recently racked-up R3,63 BILLION in unauthorised, irregular, fruitless and wasteful expenditure?

Moreover, unauthorised, irregular, fruitless and wasteful expenditure is not only prevalent but endemic in ALL government departments run by the African National Congress. 

We therefore find the allegations laughable, coming from an organisation which has excelled in squandering taxpayers' monies and whose trademark is now corruption.

Secondly, the Mzala Nxumalo region does not offer a shred of evidence to back-up their claims.

We would also like to remind the ANC in the Mzala Nxumalo region that the IEC Code of Conduct, which currently regulates the behaviour of political parties, prohibits one political party making false claims about the other. 

We therefore plan to open a case against the ANC in KZN with the IEC.

It is clear that the ANC has not only run out of steam and ideas, but most importantly, it is also running scared.

When we take over the province after 29 May 2024, the IFP will dismantle many of the corrupt empires the ANC has built, over many decades. Many comrades stand to lose not only their ill-gotten gains, but stand a real chance of seeing the inside of a prison cell too.

Give it a rest, ANCKZN.

No amount of lies will derail the most successful campaign the IFP has ever run. We plan to take back KwaZulu-Natal on 29 May 2024 for Shenge.
