PRINCE Themba Buthelezi, son of Mangosuthu Buthelezi, died on Sunday after a long illness.

NFP secretary-general Nhlanhla Khubisa said that provincial, local and national members of the NFP had visited the home of Buthelezi this week to pay homage and respect to him, and to give their condolences to the family.

“Prince Buthelezi was very instrumental, working within the community in which he lived.

He also had a close relationship with NFP leader Zanele kaMagwaza-Msibi and was a disciplined cadre,” Khubisa said.

Buthelezi had joined the NFP in 2011 and was a loyal member of the party, always making himself available to work within the community of Nkonjeni in Mahlabathini, at a grass-root level.

“We visited his home and gave our condolences to his wife, children and his father, Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi who has lost a son,” Khubisa said.

Buthelezi had been ill when joining the party and, despite his illness, still managed to assist the party with development of the community.
