PUBLIC PARTICIPATION PORFOLIO (PPP) COMMITTEE ATTENDS TO A DISPUTE OVER A TOMBSTONE OF INKOSI NTSHINGWAYO KAMAHOLE KHOZA

The PPP Committee will tomorrow, 19 February 2018, in uMhlathuze Council Chamber Richardsbay hold a meeting with two Khoza clans to find a solution to a disputed tombstone erected in Eshowe.

The two parties involved in the matter are Khoza from Eshowe and Khoza from Ulundi. Both of these groups claim that Inkosi Ntshingwayo KaMahole belong to them. The group from Ulundi are in possession of the family tree in support of their claim.  A petition was therefore received late last year by the Legislature from Mr Zwelabo Khoza requesting the Legislature to intervene in the matter pertaining to the tombstone of the late Inkosi Ntshingwayo KaMahole Khoza.

 

In a meeting of the 23 January 2018, the PPP Committee led by its Chairperson Hon EV Dube resolved that a meeting has to be convened between the two parties and that the Department of Corporative Governance and Traditional Affairs should be invited to this meeting. It is anticipated that Cogta will make its representation to this long standing dispute between the two.

 

Media is welcome to attend.
