The IFP KwaZulu-Natal Provincial Executive Committee (PEC) Chairperson, Mr Thami Ntuli, has welcomed the newly elected KZN provincial leadership of the African National Congress (ANC) this past weekend. Ntuli is hoping that this new leadership will prioritise unity and better working relations with all stakeholders in the province.
“As the IFP, we hope that the new ANC leadership in KwaZulu-Natal will have a far deeper awareness of the challenges facing our people. Among other things, we hope that they will have a better and dignified approach when it comes to the matters relating to the Zulu Royal Family and the Monarchy,” says Mr Ntuli.
“For the record, the IFP has for a long time persuaded the ANC leadership in KwaZulu-Natal to consider the issue of reconciliation between the two Parties, so that we bury the ugly past, which took the lives of thousands of our supporters during the People’s War. The outgoing provincial leadership of the ANC has been hostile, and dodges this issue,” Ntuli continued.
The IFP in KwaZulu-Natal also believes that Mr Duma and his team will charge provincial government departments to pull up their socks and accelerate service delivery to our people.
“The ANC-led provincial government has allowed internal factions within the ANC to seriously hinder service delivery to our people. This is evidenced by the way the electorate punished the ANC in the 2021 Local Government Elections. We expect that if the new leadership has to turn things around, we will see some changes within the Provincial Executive Council.”
We are looking forward to engaging with this KZN ANC leadership in our efforts to make the lives of our people better. We strongly believe that the kind of arrogance and lack of political will which we saw from the outgoing leadership is over. The people of KwaZulu-Natal deserve much better than what the provincial government offers,” concluded Mr Ntuli.
