Jiyane had late this week poured his heart out about his ambitions to contest the IFP’s upcoming elective conference with the aim of taking over from its outgoing president Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi.
The IFP is to hold its elective conference between August 23 and 25 in Ulundi, Zululand, and its national secretary, Velenkosini Hlabisa, had been earmarked to replace Buthelezi, who had announced his stepping down.
“I will use that to teach members of the IFP that they must insist on their rights. I am doing it so that people must know that this is a free country, and if you want to contest the position you have the right,” said Jiyane.
He said under his leadership the IFP would have internal democracy.
