According to ZBC:
The ministry has also instructed the Umguza district development council to recover the government allocated vehicle, all chief’s regalia and any other state assets in his custody with the assistance of the ZRP, and liaise with the Ndiweni clan to select a candidate for appointment as substantive Chief Ndiweni.
