The IFP has expressed its worry over the decision by the ANC in KwaZulu-Natal, to have Zandile Gumede return to the KZN Legislature despite corruption charges.

This follows a decision by the ANC Provincial Integrity Commission to have Gumede reinstated as a Member of Provincial Legislature, after she was asked to step aside in August.
