Abstract:

The Durban Municipality has decided not to allow a march by headmen to go on. The headmen wanted to march to express their dissatisfaction over the statue of Dinizulu which stands next to that of Louis Botha in Durban. They are unhappy that the statue remains covered without an explanation. The municipality has decided on the last minute to ban the march because it fears traditional weapons will be carried by the marchers and from past experience this might result in violence.
