THE IFP yesterday postponed its disciplinary hearing against suspended youth brigade leaders because of "technical disagreements", the rebels said.
A party spokesperson was not available for comment.
The youth leaders were suspended after tensions with the national executive council reached boiling point two weeks ago. The youth leaders are calling for the party's head, Mangosuthu Buthelezi, and other leaders to resign to make way for fresh leadership.
The suspended leaders include the brigade's chairman S'khumbuzo Khanyeza and his deputy, Simphiwe Buthelezi.
"We objected to the inclusion of Simo Mfayela as part of the committee because he is the member of the NEC, so we felt that he would be biased in his reasoning," Khanyeza said yesterday.
"The disciplinary committee could not form the required quorum, resulting in the hearing being postponed. We are waiting for the party to tell us the next date of the hearing."
Khanyeza said the youth brigade would not budge from their demands.
