...People don't understand the structure of leadership in KZN, it is different from the other provinces. It is the King's office because he opens (the provincial) Parliament.— Chief Makhanya, caller
We need to have intellectuals who decide our fate, not people who tell us that their blood is royal.— Kefilwe, caller
