Mayor Gumede Sends Condolences to Buthelezi Family
 
EThekwini Mayor Zandile Gumede has joined thousands and expressed her heartfelt condolences to Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi, his family and the entire Inkatha Freedom Party after the passing of his wife, Princess Irene Buthelezi.
 
“Losing a loved one is never easy, especially a matriarch of the family. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time. May God heal their broken hearts and may they remember the good memories they shared with her. Mama Irene was indeed a pillar of strength to Shenge. She was unwaveringly responsible for keeping the fires burning at home while the Prince was busy with his political work. She has left a big void to the family that would never be filled,” said Gumede
 
Princess Irene passed away on Monday, 25 March, after a long illness.
