ANC accused of withholding funds meant for the king

Te ANC has come under fire for not releasing funds meant for King Misizulu.

This came after it emerged that the ANC did not avail any funds for the annual Reed Dance.  

Yesterday, Blessed Gwala from the Inkatha Freedom Party, lambasted the ANC-led provincial government for not funding events held by the royal house.

Gwala said, "The ANC Government has given tacit support to a faction that is against the coronation of His Majesty, The King, by not supporting the Reed Dance ceremonies held in eMachobeni, Ingwavuma and Enyokeni Royal Palace, or this year's uMkhosi weLembe, in KwaDukuza, preferring to make funds available for the KZN Provincial Government's Heritage Day Celebration."

Gwala added that the tactic of withholding of funds to assist His Majesty can only be meant to alienate the King and to make a mockery of the monarchy.

The ANC has not responded to the allegations.
