IFP Candidate and Party Agents Attacked in Ward 1, eThekwini

Nov 1, 2021 | Press Releases

The IFP is shocked by the reported attacks on its candidate, Mr Percy Zungu, and his party agents, in Ward 1, kwaXimba Traditional Area, in eThekwini Municipality.

According to the IFP candidate, his vehicle was attacked this morning at Entukusweni Hall, and windows were broken. Then, while at Ximba Hall, the candidate and party agents were attacked in front of the police, who allegedly did not attempt to assist them. ANC supporters were allegedly chasing them away and telling them that the IFP was not supposed to be in that area. In addition, ANC supporters allegedly threatened to kill them if they remained in that area. The IFP candidate and party agents are currently at the Police Station and fearful of returning to the Voting Stations, due to the threats allegedly made by ANC supporters.

The IFP condemns this barbaric behaviour in the strongest terms. It threatens peace and stability in KwaZulu-Natal and could take the Province back to the 1980s and 1990s. We therefore call upon the ANC, the SAPS and IEC to intervene urgently.
