Manyavu tribe community members in Mkhambathini have threatened to refrain from voting in the upcoming municipal elections if their chief is not reinstated.

Hundreds of community members dressed in their traditional outfits marched to the premier’s office on Tuesday, where they submitted their memorandum. The march started at Unisa in Langalibalele Street. They are demanding the urgent reinstatement of Chief Sikhosiphi Elliot Mdluli.

Induna Alfeous Mzolo said the chief was given a letter in December last year that was signed by KZN premier Sihle Zikalala, instructing him to step down as the chief of Manyavu tribe.
