On behalf of all IFP Members, I would like to convey our heartfelt birthday wishes to His Excellency, Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi, the Prince of Kwaphindangene, Traditional Prime Minister to the Zulu Monarch and Nation, and the Founder and President Emeritus of the Inkatha Freedom Party, as we approach his 95th birthday on Sunday 27 August.

Shenge, as you reach yet another milestone in a life well-lived, marked by service to your fellow man and dedication to the many causes you believe in, we wish you good health, peace, and much happiness.

We thank God for blessing you with another year and will pray for His continued favour upon your life.

On behalf of the IFP, I would like to thank you, Shenge, for your leadership, your guidance, and the example you have set for all of us who wish to serve the people of South Africa. It is a great privilege for us as leaders of the IFP to be able to draw upon your wisdom.

For more than seven decades, your commitment to servant leadership has changed the lives of millions of South Africa, for the better.

In your dedication to education, and to the environment, you showed yourself to be a man ahead of your time; a man who believes in investing in the future, to build a better country for the next generation. We that follow in your footsteps, will continue to champion these, and the many other causes that are close to your heart.

Happy 95th birthday, Shenge! May you be richly blessed in the year ahead.
