JOHANNESBURG - Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) president Mangosuthu Buthelezi says under the leadership of President Jacob Zuma it's no wonder South Africans feel they can't trust anyone.

The IFP is launching its local government election manifesto at the King Goodwill Zwelinthini Stadium this afternoon.

Buthelezi says with the current volatile political climate South Africans don't know who they can trust and who they can vote for.

"At the highest level of leadership trust has been broken for the first time since apartheid. At all levels of government we see corruption."

He says the IFP is the only party who has never made promises which they never kept.

"Our track record when we governed the province of KwaZulu-Natal during the first 10 years of our freedom, that record speaks for itself."
