Zululand Observer - Weekender - - ZO NEWS - Wise­man Mthiyane

KZN MEC for Co­op­er­a­tive Gov­er­nance and Tra­di­tional Af­fairs (Cogta), No­musa Dube-Ncube has ex­pressed her heart­felt con­do­lences to the fam­ily of Inkosi An­dreas Ntuli (74) of the Go­dide Tra­di­tional Coun­cil in the Nkandla lo­cal mu­nic­i­pal­ity within the King Cetshwayo Dis­trict.

This fol­lows the sud­den pass­ing of Inkosi Ntuli last week, af­ter a short ill­ness.

‘The role Inkosi Ntuli has played as a tra­di­tional leader is one that can never be erased from our collective mem­ory.

‘As a pro­po­nent of de­vel­op­ment for his com­mu­nity, he has con­trib­uted to the in­sti­tu­tion of tra­di­tional lead­er­ship in KZN im­mensely.

‘As a depart­ment, we ex­press our con­do­lences to the fam­ily and the griev­ing com­mu­nity at this dif­fi­cult time. Inkosi Ntuli will be re­mem­bered for work­ing hard and for al­ways put­ting the in­ter­ests of his com­mu­nity first,’ said Dube-Ncube.

Nkandla Mayor Cllr Thami Ntuli said his mu­nic­i­pal­ity was sad­dened by the pass­ing of Inkosi Ntuli, whom they worked with for many years.

‘He was one of those tra­di­tional lead­ers who ded­i­cated his life the bet­ter­ment of his peo­ple.

‘He even used to at­tend our coun­cil meet­ings and was in­stru­men­tal in un­lock­ing ru­ral de­vel­op­ment,’ he said.

Inkosi Ntuli worked as a po­lice of­fi­cer in Gaut­eng, be­fore as­sum­ing the reigns as the head of Go­dide Tra­di­tional Au­thor­ity.

He was laid to rest on Satur­day in Nkandla.
