Legacy Celebrations kick off with Thanksgiving Ceremony
The month of August 2018 marks the commencement of the official celebrations in honouring the legacy of Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi.
As planned by the Legacy Celebrations Committee, led by Prince Zuzifa Buthelezi, the first event is on course to take place in Durban at the Durban Exhibition Centre on Sunday, 19 August 2018. Characterising the genesis of his upbringing and values that underpin his life, the Thanksgiving Service will be a time to reflect and contemplate the blessing of longevity. Thabo Makgoba, Archbishop and Metropolitan of the Anglican Church, the spiritual home of Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi, will conduct and lead the religious proceedings.
As part of what underscores the values of Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi, leaders from various denominations and religious organisations will participate through offering intercessions. It will be a time to break bread together.
The service is scheduled to start at 09h00 and it is a prelude to the main event.
On Monday, 27 August 2018 is the actual Birthday of Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi. It is this day that THE FAMILY has billed UMGIDI WASEKHAYA.
