On Wednesday, 13 September, Dr Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, a member of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) in Parliament, delivered a farewell speech at the memorial service of Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi in ULundi.

Buthelezi, the founder of the Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP), passed away on Saturday, 9 September, at the age of 95. As expected, Ndlozi’s speech garnered a lot of attention on social media and sparked a heated debate.

During his speech, Ndlozi referred to himself as Buthelezi’s son and acknowledged the influence that the IFP and its leader had on the EFF. He urged the Buthelezi family and mourners not to be swayed by negativity and ill-informed individuals who were trying to tarnish Buthelezi’s legacy. Ndlozi described Buthelezi as a man of peace, emphasizing that peace is not a language of cowards.

However, Ndlozi’s remarks were met with heavy criticism on social media. Many accused him of being historically delusional and questioned his judgment in praising Buthelezi. Some pointed out that Ndlozi himself is from the Vaal, near Boipatong, where the Boipatong massacre occurred in 1992.

They argued that it was hypocritical of him to call Buthelezi a man of peace when he had allegedly incited violence that resulted in the deaths of 45 black individuals.

Furthermore, Ndlozi’s controversial PhD thesis, in which he blamed the IFP for the Boipatong massacre, also came under scrutiny. Critics accused him of distorting historical facts and disregarding the complexities of the political situation at the time.

While Ndlozi’s speech may have stirred up controversy, it highlights the ongoing debates and divisions within South African politics. The legacy of figures like Buthelezi is complex, and opinions about their contributions to the struggle against apartheid vary.

It is important to remember that history is not black and white. It is shaped by different perspectives and interpretations. While some may view Buthelezi as a peacebuilder, others may see him as a collaborator with the apartheid regime. Similarly, Ndlozi’s remarks should be understood within the context of his own political beliefs and agenda.

As South Africans continue to grapple with their country’s history and navigate the complexities of the present, it is crucial to engage in respectful and informed dialogue. The debates sparked by Ndlozi’s speech demonstrate the importance of critically examining the narratives and assumptions that shape our understanding of the past.
