HELD ON MONDAY, 19 JUNE 2017
AT IFP HEAD OFFICE IN DURBAN
The National Executive Committee of Inkatha Freedom Party, in its weekly meeting held on Monday, 19 June 2017 at the IFP Head Office in Durban, considered a number of issues which engage the minds of South Africans at this moment. At the end of its meeting, the NEC adopted the following resolutions:
1. On Gupta Leaks and Allegations of State Capture:
The NEC noted with grave concern that the serious allegations contained in the incessant Gupta email leaks, coupled with other serious allegations of State Capture, have now reached crisis proportions to an extent that they have damaged the integrity of our President, his government and country.
This matter can no longer be ignored.
Resolution: Hence NEC resolves that the President of South Africa, H.E. JG Zuma, must prioritize the urgent constitution of the Commission of Inquiry to delve into these very serious allegations and deal decisively with all who may be implicated by such a Commission
2. On Land Redress and Restoration Debate:
NEC noted as well that the debate on land redress and restoration has degenerated into a public exchange of insults that threatens the stability of our country. Indeed the land question is an emotive issue that cannot be ignored.
Resolution: NEC therefore calls on government to convene an urgent National Indaba of all relevant South Africans which must debate this very thorny issue in a spirit of seeking to build our country and foster reconciliation and peaceful co-existence among South Africans. Such a forum give the nation an opportunity to come out with a consensus on the way forward
3. On Crime and Lawlessness:
Likewise, crime and lawlessness have reached crisis proportions and they threaten to turn our country into a political Gomorrah and Sodom. Hence some communities have resuscitated calls for a return to the death penalty.
Resolution: NEC therefore calls on President Zuma and government to again convene the national Indaba of all South Africans to debate this crisis thoroughly and come out with tangible steps to deal decisively with the scourge of crime and lawlessness.
