Inkatha Freedom Party: “Nationalizing The Mines Will Cause Irreparable Harm In South Africa”

Asserts the center-right, Zulu-nationalist party. From The Times (South Africa): “The Inkatha Freedom Party says the proposed nationalisation of mines [proposed by the ANC Youth League and supported by communist-oriented trade union group COSATU] has the potential to cause irreparable harm to South Africa’s economy. IFP national council members (NEC) who met for two days in Durban last week applauded the party’s president Mangosuthu Buthelezi ‘for taking a strong stance against nationalisation’. The party NEC members also resolved that there was no place in South Africa’s national discourse for a debate on nationalisation. The nationalisation debate had closed decades ago in other parts of the world, they said.”
