The Khindlimuka Heritage Foundation says they are planning a march to Limpopo Premier Stan Mathabatha’s office over alleged utterances made by the provincial MEC for Sport, Arts and Culture, Thandi Moraka.
This comes after she allegedly showed disdain to multi-award winning Xitsonga music legend, Dr Thomas Chauke during the Mapungubwe Arts Festival in Polokwane at the weekend.
Dr Chauke’s performance was stopped after Moraka allegedly uttered unsavoury words against the Xitsonga music, saying it is too noisy and she does not understand the language.
Moraka has labelled as baseless, allegations that she grabbed the mic from Chauke.
Spokesperson for the Khindlimuka Heritage Foundation, Gift Maswanganye says, “We take what the MEC has said as a pretence statement. She is trying to defend her office. As the Khindlimuka Heritage Foundation we are going to the office to submit the letter of intent to submit the memorandum and hold the march. We will have an event on the 16th of January, a public protest. The MEC is well known for her tribalism utterances. She literally said she does not like Xitsonga people.”
