Hlengiwe Mhlaba News
Gospel songbird Hlengiwe Mhlaba was once accused of mobilising the Nkandla community to rally behind the ANC during the local government election if they wanted to to see development in their town – a move that has infuriated the IFP which is in charge in Nkandla.
The multi-award singer was reported to have said, while dressed in the ANC’s gold, black and green regalia at the party’s 103rd anniversary rally at the Nkandla stadium, that the IFP was stifling development in President Jacob Zuma’s home town. She then told the crowd they should vote the IFP out during next year’s local government elections.
She was among artists invited to provide entertainment during an event meant to help the ANC reclaim Nkandla. However, when questioned about her statements, the singer remained tight-lipped and referred questions to the ANC and IFP.
“I am not a politician. I have decided that I’m not going to comment.
“Anyone who wants to know what really happened in Nkandla must go to the Musa Dladla (North Coast) region to look at the video,” she said.
ANC heavyweights including treasure-general Zweli Mkhize and Water and Sanitation Minister Nomvula Mokonyane were present when Mhlaba took the stage. However, ANC members denied hearing her making political statements.
