KZN MEC for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (Cogta) Nomusa Dube-Ncube has expressed her sadness at the passing of Inkosi Nicholus Valela Mbotho of the Mambotho Traditional Council in the uMuziwabantu local municipality (Ugu district).
“We are very saddened by the passing of Inkosi Mbotho. His tragic passing takes place at a time when the people of the Ugu district are still coming to terms with the passing of Inkosi Khawula which happened last month. In a short space of time we have lost two revered traditional leaders who played a meaningful role in the development of our communities,” said Dube-Ncube.
The department is in contact with the family regarding the funeral arrangements and, once confirmed, these will be communicated to the public.
