IFP national chairperson Zanele Magwaza-Msibi, whose ambitions of becoming premier remained a pipe dream, has called on party members to remain calm and accept defeat.
Magwaza-Msibi, pictured, has been retained as the Zululand district mayor after the IFP's defeat by the ANC in the elections.
Speaking in Ulundi on Friday during a Siyabonga Rally for voting IFP, she urged supporters to keep cool heads and focus on building party structures in readiness for 2011 local government elections.
The IFP scored a resounding 85,5percent victory in Ulundi and over 82percent in Nongoma.
"Let's calm down and accept the loss. For the sake of our party's image let's avoid confrontations with ANC members.
"I call for tolerance. Let's learn from our mistakes and start getting ready for local government elections in 2011," she said
"We are not dead or dying. We might have been down but we are certainly not out."
She said they would embark on "Operation Khumbulekhaya (Comeback) " soon which would involve every member of the IFP recruiting people.
"I must say . some of our colleagues who are councillors are not visible. All MPs, MPLs and councillors will report to the leadership monthly on what they have done in their areas," she said.
