Update on Prince Buthelezi's Knee Injury

03 March 2014.

  

Following the IFP's successful election manifesto launch at the King Zwelithini Stadium in Umlazi yesterday, the IFP President Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi MP, is receiving scheduled, specialised medical treatment on his knee in Durban today.

 

Last week, as he was leaving his office to attend a reception of the US Ambassador, Prince Buthelezi missed a step in the parliamentary buildings and slipped. Like thousands of people every year, Prince Buthelezi ruptured his quadriceps tendon, the connective tissue that binds the powerful muscles of the thigh to the kneecap.

 

With an injury of this nature, medical treatment is essential.
