Listen to the conversation below:
I am not saying it was good that they were sjamboked and torched. What I'm saying is that those people undermined the decision of the traditional court.— Chief Xolile Ndevu, Contralesa national general secretary
Did King Dalindyebo have the intention to break the law or did he believe that he was inficting punishment in his capacity as king?— Zahir Omar, attorney representing King Dalindyebo
Let us be frank and honest, nature does not allow for equality. Naturally there is no equality. There is no person who is equal to another.— Chief Xolile Ndevu, Contralesa national general secretary
