- The IFP's Mangosuthu Buthelezi said the ANC had failed to deliver on its promises
- He said that the IFP, in contrast, valued the right things
- Additionally, he urged undecided voters to read the IFP manifesto
IFP leader, Mangosuthu Buthelezi, has said that a vote for the IFP is a vote for integrity.
He made the comments while addressing supporters on Sunday.
Buthelezi sang the IFP's praises as well as slammed the failures of other parties.
The 90-year-old IFP boss said that the economic improvements promised by the ANC had not come to pass and alleged that the ruling party did not value the right things, according to The Citizen.
In contrast, Buthelezi said his party placed principles above politics.
Additionally, Buthelezi has said that this will be his last race as the IFP's presidential candidate. He has said that he will be stepping down after the election.
The IFP has the fourth largest support base of any South African political party and Buthelezi has aspirations of playing a role on the national stage, but the IFP remains a regional party, with almost all of its support based in KwaZulu-Natal.
Additionally, despite its long history, the IFP's share of the vote remains below 5%.
Nevertheless, Buthelezi received a warm welcome when he appeared before a crowd at Chatsworth Stadium. He thanked supporters for standing by the party and urged newcomers to read the IFP's election manifesto.
