Limpopo Premier Stainley Mathabatha is mourning the death of the King of Bapedi Nation , his majesty King Thulare Victor Thulare III.
The 40-year-old king led the Bapedi nation for less than a year.
King Thulare III was inaugurated by the President Cyril Ramaphosa in March last year after a huge battle for the first seat in the Bapedi clan with his uncle Kgagudi Kenneth Sekhukhune which ended up at the Constitutional court.
The Ministry of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma has also sent words of condolences. “We were looking forward to his continued leadership in building a united kingship and promoting development in his area.”
The Bapedi royal council is expected to give more details on Thursday surrounding King’s death.
