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.
