IFP NEC Suspends Councillor Sibisi with Immediate Effect

Dec 14, 2021 | Press Releases

The Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) has today suspended Councillor Musa Sibisi from the Party, with immediate effect.

Yesterday the IFP’s National Executive Committee (NEC) was advised of the very serious allegations against – and subsequent arrest of – the Councillor and resolved that he should immediately be suspended from all party activities. The KZN Provincial Executive Committee (PEC) and Political Oversight Committee (POC) have now been tasked with investigating the allegations and establishing all the material facts. They will report back to the NEC on Monday, 20 December.

The IFP takes these allegations very seriously and is committed to giving this matter the urgent and immediate attention it deserves.

It is further our expectation that the Court processes will move with the necessary speed, so that justice may be served swiftly.

The IFP would like to categorically state that the Party does not condone – and will not tolerate – any form of abuse, exploitation or violence against women, children, and other vulnerable people. This, particularly from public representatives that have been appointed to serve in best interests of their communities.

Should these allegations prove to be true, the Councillor will face the highest possible sanction from the Party and be banned from holding office in any party structures for life.
