Traditional guides in KwaZulu-Natal meet with Provincial Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs (Cogta) MEC Sipho Hlomuka in Durban.
Among their concerns is the assassination of traditional leaders. In the latest incident, Chief Nkosiyesizwe Prince Msingaphantsi of the Mzwelethu Traditional Council was killed at his home by unknown assailants.
Last week Chief Mandlakayise Nxumalo was killed in Nazareth in Ladysmith in his traditional council office.
Cogta provincial spokeswoman Nonala Ndlovu says: “We can confirm that the MEC is meeting with the traditional leadership and he is doing so while he is truly distraught, barely a week after Inkosi Nxumalo’s funeral. He received the message from the late Inkosi Msingaphantsi from Umzimkhulu and Induna Nene from Estcourt.
This will surely be a key topic of discussion at the meeting, as both aAmakhosi and MEC are deeply moved by these incidents, which really call into question the dignity that should be accorded to the institution of traditional leadership.”
