IFP mayors and councillors have been told to toe the line or suffer the consequences.
National IFP organiser and acting chairperson of the political oversight committee, Albert Mncwango, issued a stern warning to all the party's mayors and councillors to "keep out of the so-called succession debate.
He said the IFP views the succession debate as an internal matter to be dealt with during its upcoming annual general conference.
"Any IFP councillor or mayor found to be participating in activities that may bring the party into disrepute will see decisive steps taken against him or her by the relevant party structures," he said.
Mncwango was reacting to reports suggesting that certain IFP mayors and councillors had threatened to challenge decisions of the party's various decision-making structures regarding redeployment in local government.
He also denied reports that the party planned to redeploy the IFP's national chairperson, Zanele Magwaza-Msibi, the mayor of the Zululand district municipality.
Mncwango insisted that none of the party structures have discussed Magwaza-Msibi's position and "I urged members not to bring the party into disrepute".
