The IFP National Executive Committee met last night in a special meeting following the sad and untimely passing of His Majesty King Goodwill Zwelithini kaBhekuzulu.
The IFP NEC expressed its shock and pain at the passing of ISilo SamaBandla and offered its most sincere condolences to the Royal Family and the Zulu Nation.
The NEC resolved that:
1. As a sign of respect to His Majesty the IFP will suspend, with immediate effect, all political activities that had been scheduled and this suspension will go on until the King has been laid to rest.
The NEC further called on all South Africans to keep the Royal Family in their thoughts and prayers during this difficult time of bereavement.
South Africa has lost a great patriot and a champion of the People who lead from the front. The passing of His Majesty is a monumental loss for all of us. He was a steadfast advocate for Ubuntu, culture, tradition and development.
May His Majesty rest in God’s eternal peace.
