NFP donates house to son of IFP leader

Durban - NFP leader Zanele Magwaza-Msibi donated a fully furnished house to the son of IFP leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi, the Mercury reported on Wednesday.

According to the paper, kaMagwaza-Msibi handed a four-room house to ailing Themba Buthelezi, 63, who had been sharing a two-room shack with his wife and five children, at Nkonjeni near Mahlabathini.

Themba's brother Tutu Buthelezi, an ANC councillor, said Themba was an epileptic and his family had been living in appalling conditions, the Mercury reported.

The National Freedom Party leader reportedly raised funds to build the house through her Zanele kaMagwaza-Msibi foundation, which was launched three months ago.

She also handed another four-room house to Annie Sithole, 80, whose house was destroyed in a recent storm.

The NFP was formed by Inkatha Freedom Party members earlier this year after disputes arose over campaigning for leadership positions in the IFP.

As a result, the IFP gained an outright majority in only two municipalities in KwaZulu-Natal on May 18. It controlled 29 municipalities before the elections.

    Well clearly Dr Buthelezi is a kind, loving and considerate father. I'm sure in his culture it is quite normal to allow you children to live in poverty whilst you live in luxury. I hope Santa kicks you in the a$$

      Why have comments been closed on the article dealing with Zuma's attack on Christianity. Are we supposed to keep quiet when this moron attacks our faith? Retract the article News24 and admit he never said it or allow us to comment.
