Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi has lost his R200 000 defamation lawsuit against Business Day, which quoted political analyst Protas Madlala describing him as a “violent man”.

“It leaves open the possibility that the Prince (Buthelezi) is not complicit in KwaZulu-Natal’s political violence (in which case there is no defamation),” Willis said in his judgment handed down yesterday.
