It is with great pride that the Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) pays tribute to its founder and President Emeritus, Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi, and wishes him a happy 94th birthday.
Prince Buthelezi has dedicated his life to servant, moral and ethical leadership, and has given South Africa more than seven decades of public service.
We are grateful for the invaluable role he continues to play as an elder statesman and voice of reason in South Africa’s body politic, which is fraught with many deep and debilitating challenges.
We also wish to applaud him for the work he continues to do in service of the Zulu Nation, as Traditional Prime Minister to the Zulu Nation and Monarch.
We continue to honour the founder of the IFP for a legacy of service – one that is built on decades of commitment to uplifting our people. Amongst his many notable achievements over many decades, are the establishment of Ithala Bank, the Mangosuthu University of Technology, the building of schools, hospitals and homes, the support and protection of AmaKhosi and the protection of land under the Ingonyama Trust.
We wish Prince Buthelezi good health, more wisdom, and more happy birthdays.
