POLITICS

The Ingonyama Trust Board, whose residential lease programme was just last week deemed unlawful by the Durban High Court and ordered to pay back millions of rands that it illegally received from people living on trust land, is set to face yet another legal challenge, this time in the International Criminal Court in The Hague in the Netherlands.

Set to join the trust in the dock is former Inkatha Freedom party leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi, in his capacity as the Zulu nation’s prime minister; the Zulu monarch; and the presidency. The Ingonyama Trust Board is a corporate entity that was established in 1994 to administer the land traditionally owned by the Zulu people.
