Durban - IFP leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi has called on voters to remove from state power those who liberated them - but later became corrupt and looted state resources.
The elderly statesman, who recently announced he would not be returning to Parliament, although he would remain the face of the party’s campaign, was delivering his party’s election manifesto at the Chatsworth Stadium in the south of Durban on Sunday.
During the event he announced the party’s general-secretary, Velenkosini Hlabisa, as the party’s premier candidate for KwaZulu-Natal.
He said instead of being given more power, high-profile government leaders should be jailed for looting the state.
“We should be getting that apology. Instead, it’s business as usual, while the Zondo commission brings us one revelation after the next of deeply entrenched corruption,” he said.
