2010-09-08 19:19
Durban - A sign language interpreter will be provided for deaf maidens at the reed dance, the KwaZulu-Natal department of arts and culture said on Wednesday.

"The department will be bringing a sign language interpreter for deaf maidens who will be taking part at the reed dance," said spokesperson Vukani Mbhele.

This weekend, about 26 000 maidens will take part in the annual reed dance at Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini’s palace eNyokeni, in northern KwaZulu-Natal.

Mbele said that while the King delivered his speech, the interpreter would be at his side interpreting for the deaf maidens.

"The department has also arranged transport for about 20 maidens living with disability that will be attending the reed dance," said Mbhele.

He said the government needed to support people living with disability who took part in social activities.

"The maidens will be escorted by their care-givers to the reed dance," said Mbhele.
