On 3 May, in a bid to address its problems and dispel media rumours about the well-being of its national chairperson, the IFP announced that KaMagwaza-Msibi would host several post-election rallies in addition to the many public meetings she is already chairing across Natal to thank all those who voted IFP. As of 3 May, her itinerary had covered Zululand, Amajuba and eThekwini.
The IFP also announced that, rather than lead the party as official opposition in the KwaZulu-Natal Legislature, KaMagwaza-Msibi had opted to stay on as Mayor of the Zululand District Municipality as part of efforts to revive the IFP's grassroots support ahead of the 2011 local government elections. "The party's post-election priority is the need to accelerate service delivery at local level rather than play opposition politics," she announced after consulting at length with the party's internal structures.
