KWADUKUZA Municipality mayor, together with officials, unveiled the newly renovated municipal offices in Ballito on September 1.

The newly renovated building has been named Nokukhanya Luthuli House after the late ANC president Chief Albert Luthuli’s wife.

The event was attended by Luthuli family members, including former member of Parliament Dr Albertina Luthuli, Dr Ela Gandhi and councillors.

Speaking at the event, mayor Ricardo Mthembu said that the naming of the building is part of the municipality’s way of celebrating the life of Nokukhanya Luthuli.

“We are here to celebrate the life of Nokukhanya Luthuli, the wife of Chief Albert Luthuli. We have decided to name this new building Nokukhanya Luthuli House to show how much we value what she did for the liberation struggle. May I also emphasise that this generation, our generation, has a responsibility to honour and rekindle the spirit of uMama Nokukhanya Luthuli,” said Mthembu.

There was also a panel discussion, where several speakers spoke about issues affecting women and the role they play in society.

Nokukhanya Luthuli House is situated at the same place as the old offices and Ballito residents have welcomed the renovation,

Mthembu also took the opportunity to convey a message to women and said that they must champion the struggle against teenage pregnancy.

“Women must wage a struggle against teenage pregnancy because it is one of the areas, if not corrected, that has the potential to cause a lot of harm to society at large.

“This also causes a strain on the economy, as the government has to take responsibility for raising the little ones through grants,” he added.
