The Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) rubbished unsubstantiated and fabricated allegations about the party allegedly plotting to assassinate Secretary-General of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) Marshall Dlamini.
IFP National Spokesperson Mkhuleko Hlengwa said this is classical historical ANC playbook stuff “false narratives, victimhood, and wherein they bring the security forces on-side and then accuse third parties of doing what they are about to do”.
Hlengwa reiterated that the EFF’s delusions of grandeur have come full circle in the face of a brewing internal revolt emanating out of its decision to restore the ANC into power. He added that the EFF exaggerated its influence, assuming its parting of ways with us would spell disaster for the IFP.
“The allegations are inflammatory and dangerous politicking. They have produced nothing whatsoever to back this serious claim, which the IFP now demands be investigated by SAPS. If SAPS genuinely knew of an assassination plot, and knew who was plotting it, they would have made arrests”.
Hlengwa further said the IFP calls on Minster Bheki Cele and the State Security Agency to clarify this allegation.
