“In the position of deputy traditional prime minister, I am announcing Inkosi Chiliza. Can I ask him to come forward, please? Inkosi Chiliza worked very well with the previous king. And he was a dedicated, committed, and trustworthy person. And he was able to run the house of traditional leaders in the province successfully.”
