“I don’t care”, Mgilija strikes



Mgilija Nhleko says he doesn’t care what Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi or the royal house says about him and his support for Zuma.

Mgilija was in Nkandla with a group of men draped in some Zulu attire, posed as Amabutho. According to the statement, which was released by Buthelezi, those men were not Amabutho as king MisuZulu had not authorized any deployment of Amabutho to Nkandla.

The controversial Mgiliha has hit back at Zulu traditional prime minister Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi and the Zulu Royal Family. He told reporters that he is not bothered by what Mangosuthu is saying. “The traditional attire we are wearing is ours. The royal family did not buy us the attire. What did they want us to wear, the Zion uniform?” Nhleko asked angrily during his interview.
