Although my say in this matter wont change anything, I strongly object to wastage of public money on things that do not benefit the people. I am yet to see some intervention the King would say with pride that he has done for VhaVenda nation. He has shares in ailing VBS bank that has been making a lot of money for him and his family, i thought the investments he makes in any venture should be guided by the needs of the people. I want to see the king bringing the old Venda culture back, initiate projects and programmes that create jobs for the people, get involved in the land issue that is being debated currently, partner with UNIVEN and other education institutions to promote developmental Venda nation. I dont believe this has to do with Zwelithini or whoever getting whichever amount, the fact is that our King must justify what he is doing with our money. Zwelithini has vast track of land controlled by Ingonyama trust for the Zulu nation, what do we have as VhaVenda? absolutely nothing!! King Mphephu please stand up and work for your nation, not these things of giving primary school kids shoes and related issues, i am talking about projects that have significant impacts to the people. We have many professors and highly educated people among the VhaVenda nation, maybe a starting point would be to organise a workshop and bring them together and gain from their knowledge. Working for your people will gain you as a King a lot of respect like the Zulu king. Honestly as it stands i dont see any significant respect for the king especially among the youth because they are well aware that the existence or nonexistence of the King has not bearing in their lives.
