Amakhosi tears

CityPress - - Voices -

Siyahleba dis­cov­ered this week that hell hath no fury like a tra­di­tional leader scorned.

This is what Ru­ral De­vel­op­ment and Land Re­form Min­is­ter Gugile Nk­winti found out dur­ing a meet­ing with tra­di­tional lead­ers in Par­lia­ment this week.

The amakhosi had in­vited Nk­winti to brief them about land-re­lated poli­cies. What he en­coun­tered were some re­ally an­gry chiefs. Af­ter Nk­winti ex­plained some pro­posed laws, in­clud­ing one that came into ef­fect this week, one un­con­vinced leader re­marked: “This de­bate re­minds me of a song: Killing Me Softly!”
