IFP Notes Calls for Relocation of KZN Legislature to Ulundi

Jun 27, 2023 | Press Releases, Provincial (KZN/Gauteng)

The IFP in the KZN Legislature notes the calls from other parties who are appealing for the relocation of the KZN Legislature to Ulundi. The IFP has long held – and expressed – the view that the Legislature should relocate to the state-of-the-art facility in Ulundi, which was inherited from the erstwhile KwaZulu government.

The IFP is pleased that other parties are now also supporting this suggestion.

The IFP has, on numerous occasions, clearly stated its opposition to the R6.8 billion development of the KwaZulu-Natal government precinct in Pietermaritzburg. This would be a complete waste of taxpayers’ money, as a suitable facility already exists in Ulundi.

This new precinct would amount to nothing more than wasteful expenditure.

Our wish is that the billions earmarked for this project should instead be directed to areas of greatest need, to make a dent in the poverty that so many of our people find themselves in. Further, we are concerned it will be used as an opportunity to enrich connected companies, by awarding tenders under the guise of building a new Legislature precinct.

As the Official Opposition in KwaZulu-Natal, the IFP will continue to call for a move to Ulundi, rather than the unnecessary – and wasteful – proposal to build a new precinct in Pietermartizburg.
