Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi, the President
of the Inkatha Freedom Party, today condemned those responsible
for the desecration of the tombstone of inkosi Salimani Gcumisa.
This grotesque act was followed by an attempt by ANC supporters,
reportedly brandishing guns in some instances, to intimidate
people to not attend the unveiling function in Kwaswayimani.
Mangosuthu Buthelezi will proceed to give
the keynote speak at the grave of Inkosi Gcumisa this morning.
In his speech, Buthelezi will address the Zulu question and
refute the critics who have accused him of ethno-nationalism.
