MEC for Arts and Culture Bongi Sithole-Moloi, representing Premier Willies Mchunu, and provincial deputy speaker Mishack Radebe were present at the service.

So were leaders of Muslim and Hindus faiths as well as IFP veterans such as former premier Frank Mdlalose.

IFP MP Narend Singh said only invited guests would attend the ICC event.

He couldn’t confirm who among international dignitaries had been invited.

“We are still finalising the list of guests. We will only know during the week. But the Ulundi celebration on the 27th will be open to everyone,” he said.
