‘Don’t have fac­tions or fight each other over suc­ces­sor of ‘TV’

Sunday Observer - - NEWS -

Their Majesties yes­ter­day morn­ing ad­vised rel­a­tives, sib­lings, chil­dren and grand­chil­dren of the late act­ing Ludzidzini gover­nor to stay away from chief­dom fac­tions.

‘TV’ suc­ceeded his fa­ther, Ind­vuna Man­danda as Ind­vuna of sev­eral chief­doms with­out chiefs.

Their Majesties were rep­re­sented by League of Swazi­land Churches Pres­i­dent Bishop Sam­son Hlatshwako.

He said their Majesties have a clear mes­sage to the Mt­set­fwa’s that they should not in any way fight over who must be a suc­ces­sor for the late gover­nor.“An ind­vuna is born not elected so you should not in any way start fac­tions over who must be a suc­ces­sor,” Hlatjwayo told the Mt­set­fwa fam­ily.

He then asked the two wives of the late Ind­vuna to be strong by em­u­lat­ing those who had also felt the pain of be­ing wid­ows. Hlatjwayo em­pha­sised that the Mtetwa fam­ily should re­main united so their Majesties can ap­point other tind­vuna from them. Hlatjwako said their Majesties and the na­tion have lost a hard work­ing man in ‘TV’. He sent their Majesties con­do­lences to the friends and rel­a­tives of the be­lat­edly.

He added that, re­cently ap­pointed Chiefs were still learn­ing a lot from the man who he de­scribed as wise.
