Buthelezi of­fers us princely ad­vice on sport

The Star Early Edition - - LIFESTYLE VERVE - Themba J Nkosi

IT WAS in­spi­ra­tional in so many ways to wit­ness Prince Man­go­suthu Buthelezi at the in­au­gu­ra­tion of the KwaMashu park run on Satur­day.

We as run­ners and or­di­nary peo­ple drew in­spi­ra­tion from his speech. Shenge (Buthelezi) has al­ways en­cour­aged par­tic­i­pat­ing in sport. I re­call that 30 years ago he once said “sports teaches one to be self dis­ci­plined and to obey the rules in­stead of tak­ing short cuts”.

We hope that his pres­ence on that oc­ca­sion will be a life­time in­spi­ra­tion to us in so may ways. Madadeni, KwaZu­luNatal
