Inkatha Freedom Party leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi says Zulu king Goodwill Zwelithini’s re-instatement of the annual Reed Dance has slowed the advance of the Aids pandemic.

Buthelezi was speaking at the King Shaka Day celebrations in KwaDukuza in KwaZulu-Natal.

He said the nation owes Zwelithini a debt of gratitude for his initiative.

The festival sees hundreds of maidens presenting a reed, symbolising their purity, to the king.
