We are deeply saddened to learn of the tragic assassination of Iso Lesilo of the KwaNobamba Traditional Council, Mr. Mbangiseni Gibson Mbuyisa, who was gunned down near his business in the Ezibomvu area last night. 

Mbuyisa served the traditional community of KwaNobamba with diligence on behalf of His Majesty, King Misuzulu kaZwelithini; he was also a member of the Zululand Local House of Traditional Lwaders.

As a department, we are deeply saddened by the tragic loss of yet another leader within the province’s institution of traditional leadership. 

These attacks threaten to destabilize the institution within our province, and we call upon law enforcement agencies to leave no stone unturned in their quest to apprehend the criminals responsible for these attacks. 

We wish to convey our condolences to the Mbuyisa family and to His Majesty the King, who has lost yet another diligent steward within a very short space of time. 

We call upon the community to work closely with law enforcement in the hunt for the perpetrators.

Issued by the MEC for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, Bongi Sithole-Moloi
