About Maliyakhe Lymon Shelembe

In 2001 Mr Shelembe was elected as a ward councillor for the IFP. In that same year, he also became the Deputy Mayor of Umtshezi, and then later became Mayor. In 2004, when the ANC took control of the municipality, he became an ordinary councillor. In 2007 he was re-elected as the mayor of Umtshezi. The division in the IFP resulted in the formation of the NFP, which was officially launched in February 2011. In 2011, the NFP deployed Mr Shelembe to the position of Deputy Mayor in Uthukela municipality in KwaZulu-Natal. He was elected the National Chairperson of the NFP in December 2011.
