The Youth Brigade

The IFP is made up of a “main” body, which is led by our President Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi and his National Executive Committee (NEC). Members of the Youth Brigade serve on the National Executive Committee (NEC), which meets every Monday to consider important matters affecting the Party as well the country as a whole. Election for the Youth Brigade takes place every five years at their national conferences.Mkhuleko Hlengwa is the National Chairperson of the Youth Brigade.
