At the ground breaking of the Durban Temple of The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Edith was able to fulfill that dream.
Dr. Mangosuthu Buthelezi 88, is the great-grandson of King Dinisulu and direct descendant of warrrior-king Shaka. As heir to the Chieftainship of the Buzelezi tribe, he is, therefore, a prince.

When President Mandela was in the US to receive a Congressional Order, Buthelezi served as acting president. Dr. Buthelezi continues to serve as a member of South Africa's Parliament today.
