Nkohla said that after reflection and advice from his family and the constituency he represented, he could no longer be attached to a party led by “someone with serious allegations against him”, referring to chief party leader Gcobani Ndzongana.
“I cannot in good conscience continue to associate myself with a party that is led by someone who is facing serious allegations of child rape, incitement of violence and a questionable integrity that goes against my moral values,” Nkohla said.
Nkohla said he decided to refocus his energy to advocate and advance the constitutional rights for dignity and parity particularly to those in informal settlements, backyard dwellings and social housing.
Ndzongana said Nkohla’s resignation was accepted. He said the agenda for the Land Party central committee meeting this weekend included a discussion around numerous allegations against Nkohla and a vote was going to be taken to remove him from the organisation.
