MEC for local government and traditional affairs Mike Mabuyakhulu will meet the traditional leaders from the eThekwini municipality today.
The urgent meeting comes after Mangosuthu Buthelezi, the provincial chairman of the House of Traditional Leaders, complained about a lack of funding.
Buthelezi said traditional leaders were not allocated their "own budget" and had to rely on hand-outs from the provincial department.
He said that though he was the chairman, he did not have an office or a single employee.
"If you ask me where our offices of the Zululand House of Traditional Leaders are, my answer would be, I don't know."
