CORRUPTION charges against Nelisiwe Mncwango, the wife of IFP national organiser Albert Mncwango, have been withdrawn, the party said yesterday .
"By withdrawing the fraud charges against Mrs Mncwango, the Public Prosecutor has acknowledged that there is no substance to the case against her," IFP deputy national chairperson, Velaphi Ndlovu said.
The IFP had been vindicated in its support for Mncwango, the director of community services at Nongoma Municipality, Ndlovu said.
Mncwango was charged with stealing Nongoma Municipality funds early this year.
Ndlovu said the IFP had stood by Mncwango throughout her legal difficulties because it believed charges against her were politically motivated.
"Mrs Mncwango is a former deputy national chairperson of the IFP Women's Brigade and former Speaker of Nongoma Municipality and as such is a prime target for anyone bent on discrediting the IFP." - Sapa
