Durban - Outgoing IFP leader Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi on Saturday called on his party to return to grassroot activism.
Addressing delegates at the party’s elective conference in Ulundi, Buthelezi said stories of the IFP legacy must be told.
“This is why I have called on our Youth Brigade and our Women’s Brigade to reignite political education, ensuring that at branch level we convey to our members the real story of the IFP. It is this that grows cohesion and commitment.
“In the early years of Inkatha, long before WhatsApp groups and Facebook, people used to gather in branch meetings and talk about the issues of the day. At grassroots level, people made the time and created the space to listen and participate.”
Buthelezi said there was tremendous value in posting a Tweet about the country, and in following a newsfeed.
