Heroes not made
The question is whether Chief Buthelezi, in his own conduct and as the leader of Inkatha Freedom Party, acts in a manner akin to the actions of our liberation heroes?
Personally, I don't know him as a leader who fought apartheid.
Refusal to accept independence never made him any better than those who accepted it because he did nothing to advance the struggle for liberation .
It is misleading to suggest Chief Buthelezi worked hand in hand with the ANC without explaining how he did that and in which programmes of the ANC he participated.
