It is with a heavy heart that I mourn the passing of Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi.
Rest now Mntwana. A great guiding light of the Zulu Nation has gone out.
I count myself fortunate to have known His Royal Highness, who is now in the presence of The Light of World. A phrase that he had treasured from his Sunday School days.
We will never see his like again, for he was a tangible link to the past and now that chain is broken.
