Trust should be disbanded.
Spokesperson for the Izinduna in KZN, Muzi Nyandeni, said the Zulu nation faces a bleak future with the government planning to take what belongs to them.
‘I urge all warriors across the province to attend this important imbizo called by our King.
Even those who are working in the cities should at least book off sick or take days off to be present.
‘I also need to state that as Zulus and occupants of the land under the Ingonyama Trust, we are ready to defend what belongs to us.
‘We know that should the government dispossess us of this land, we will become homeless as most of us will not be able to afford lease agreements if the government wants us to pay rent.
‘It is not by mistake that we were born in this province. This land belonged to our forefathers, so we must by all means fight for what is rightfully ours,’ said Nyandeni.
He also stressed that not only Zulus were expected to be part of the imbizo, but all people benefitting from Ingonyama Trust land should attend.
‘I wish to further urge all warriors to refrain from stick fighting and consuming alcohol on the day as the issue is an important one.
‘Everyone is expected to wear their traditional attire or normal clothes and not political regalia,’ said Nyandeni.
