EUSEBIUS MCKAISER | The IFP wants unconditional love, so it's protesting against a 'lowly newspaper man'

What is the point of the IFP? If anyone knows, I would love you to tell me. For months, I have been ruminating over this, and delaying critical engagement with historical material on the party and talking to its leadership. Sporadic electoral successes in KwaZulu-Natal, for example, seem as much a consequence of ANC and DA missteps as anything intentional and coherent that the IFP is doing, politically. What and who are they in modern SA?..
