The African National Congress is starting its “dispute resolution process” in a bid to address the a.
The ANC in KwaZulu-Natal has challenged IFP president Mangosuthu Buthelezi to present evidence of ANC members burning IFP T-shirts in the presence of Jacob Zuma and party provincial chairman Zweli Mkhize.
The ANC claims its own investigation shows that nothing of this sort happened.
Buthelezi made the allegations on national television and radio in the presence of other leaders, including the UDM's Bantu Holomisa, ANC's Jeff Radebe, DA's Helen Zille and Cope's Mosiuoa Lekota.
He accused Zuma and Mkhize of standing by when former IFP members allegedly burnt T-shirts with his face printed on them.
ANC provincial secretary Senzo Mchunu said they were appalled by the accusations.
He said the ANC could find no evidence supporting the IFP leader's allegations. IFP spokesman John Kaiser said the matter was serious and a statement would be issued.
