Venda king fully supports his subjects

07 May 2016, 02:00 Lizeka Tandwa, News24

Polokwane – King of the VhaVenda people Toni Ramabulana said on Friday that he fully supports his subjects in their fight against rezoning and a merger that will see them  incorporated into a new municipality that will include Malamulele.

"We as traditional leaders are the voice of the people. We cannot talk about the chief and king without mentioning our subjects. They came to us and even though they don't want the municipality we will still support them," he said. 

Thousands of schoolchildren have been affected in the volatile Vuwani area after 23 schools were set alight with 19 burnt to the ground. 

Ramabulana said he had agreed with government officials to visit the affected schools.

He said the situation at Vuwani needed President Jacob Zuma's attention and traditional leaders were ready to talk to him. 

"This is a political problem it needs a political solution. We are trying to get the attention of the president,” he said. 

By Friday evening Vuwani was calm.

Police said 15 people had been arrested.
