Opening of KZN Provincial House Of Traditional Leaders; Zulu King condemns burning of KZN COGTA offices


The KZN Provincial House of Traditional Leaders was officially opened today by His Majesty the King, Goodwill Zwelithini kaBhekuzulu at the Old Legislative Building in Ulundi which houses the institution.

The annual opening is a key moment in the province’s calendar of events when the King addresses amakhosi on pressing issues affecting communities across the province.

Today’s opening was a wonderful and colourful occasion with amakhosi adorned in their traditional attire gathered together to hear the King’s wise counsel. In his address, the Zulu King condemned the barbaric act of sabotage in which Mayville offices of KZN Cogta were torched in the early hours of this morning.

In her address, MEC for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Nomusa Dube-Ncube, who was representing the Premier, thanked His Majesty for the guidance he continues to give to the province.

“As the provincial government, we are honoured to have a good relationship with the institution of traditional leadership who are a reliable partner in our government’s efforts to develop our communities,” said Dube-Ncube.
