The MDB is deeply saddened by the untimely passing of Ikosi Sipho Etwell Mahlangu, Chairperson of the National House of Traditional and Khoi-San Leaders (NHTKL).  Being one of the MDB’s key stakeholders, the NHTKL took part at the launch of the ward delimitation process in February 2020 and Ikosi Mahlangu articulated his commitment to support the MDB in its endeavour to deepen democracy through spatial transformation.

We value his immense contribution and support to champion the interests of traditional communities in relation to traditional council boundaries. We salute his invaluable leadership.

The MDB extends sincere condolences to his family and his team at the NHTKL. His legacy shall live on.

Rest in perfect peace Ndabezitha.
