IFP urges against participation in any possible violent protest action

Published on

The IFP has urged South Africans not to engage in any rumoured violent protest action, and has called for the ANC to be held accountable for July’s mayhem.

The Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) called for calm and alleged unrest instigators to be brought to book on Monday, 23 August 2021. This is following the IFP’s observation of various reports that had circulated over the past 48 hours, indicating the possibility of protest action scheduled for Monday.

The party called for calm and encouraged South Africans to refrain from participating in any violent protest action. The IFP posed the question of how the people of KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) and South Africa could place their trust in those who were allegedly involved in the mayhem of July, which the IFP has underlined to have left the country reeling and saw people losing their lives and livelihoods.

The party further called for those responsible to be held accountable – including those who are rank-and-file members of the governing party, the African National Congress (ANC), without fear or favour. The IFP believes that people deserve the truth, for the rule of law to be upheld, and for the governing party to be held accountable. The opposition penned the call for the end and prohibition of this alleged protest action under the hashtags, #NOSHUTDOWN, #NOVIOLENCE and #NOHATE.
