IFP: Mayor of uMvoti Local Municipality Resigns As Per Party Directive

May 25, 2024 | Press Releases

The mayor of the uMvoti Local Municipality, Councillor Gab Malembe, tendered his resignation as mayor of uMvoti Local Municipality yesterday, as per the Party’s directive.

This resignation follows his election earlier this week through a coalition arrangement with the ANC.

However, this coalition arrangement was made without the approval of the Party’s leadership.

Accordingly, the IFP considered the coalition arrangement to be irregular and ill-advised and directed Cllr Malembe to resign with immediate effect.

The IFP welcomes his cooperation and compliance with the Party directive. He remains an Exco Councillor.
