IFP Councillor Accused of Rape Directed to Tender Resignation

Aug 16, 2023 | Press Releases

The Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) has yesterday directed an IFP Councillor in Alfred Duma Municipality accused to rape to tender his resignation immediately; and such resignation has been tendered.

The Party will allow the law to run its course, as well as follow internal disciplinary procedures, depending on the outcome of the official police investigation.

As a party, the IFP remains committed to the fight against gender-based violence (GBV) and will never allow any persons who commit acts of GBV to remain within our ranks. We strive to always appoint persons of integrity to positions of authority. Unfortunately, there are times when the trust we have placed in our public servants is betrayed.

As the IFP, we would like to state clearly that if and when we are made aware of this type of serious accusation, we do not hesitate to take decisive action.

The IFP continues to advocate for justice for victims of GBV, and to offer support to victims of these crimes, as well as their families.
