This was revealed by Umguza district development co-ordinator (DDC) Tapiwa Zivovoyi in an interview with NewsDay on Monday. He confirmed meeting Chief Ndiweni’s lawyer, Dumisani Dube on Monday. He said:
Yes, we met him. In fact, how can we collect the property if he (Ndiweni) is not around? He is the only person who must give us, we will wait for him.
