The Mvezo Welcome Centre was struck by lightning on Saturday and its thatched roof caught fire destroying the centre. Nkosi Zwelivelile of Royal House of Mandela said this was an act of nature and no foul play or any other cause is suspected.
“It is regrettable that we have lost this infrastructure which was at an advanced stage of construction and R10m was spent on the first phase and the lightning mast poles were not installed yet”.
The Mvezo Welcome Centre was funded through the National Lottery and a total of R17m was committed of which R10m was spent. “We assure the local community and our development partner, the National Lottery, that no sabotage was involved and that the cause was beyond anyone’s control.”
