KZN’s democratic revolution – IFP looks forward

A democratic revolution in South Africa’s province of KwaZulu-Natal.

KZN’s democratic revolution

In recent by-elections, the IFP has won five previously safe ANC wards.

And in those where it fell short, posted massive double-digit gains in its share of the vote.

And turned the ruling party’s majority from comfortable to marginal.

The party, founded by Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi in 1975, is a staunch member of the anti-ANC/EFF Rainbow Coalition.
It governed KZN between 1994 and 2004, a project which is regarded as unfinished business.
The IFP’s newfound momentum is perfectly timed ahead of the watershed 2024 Election.
They expect to regain the right to govern the province – and to share power nationally.

Its president Velenkosini Hlabisa, who succeeded Buthelezi in August 2019, explains how the recent surge is part of a long-term plan embarked upon almost ten years ago.
