October’s backstage Access pass

MW Ebukhosinithevillage 1920X1080

You’ve seen Law & Order, and all our soaps eventually give us a story that winds up in court in front of a judge in a barrister wig. For the first time ever, Ebhukhosini is taking South Africa inside our traditional tribal courts. Ndabezitha Chief Nsizwa Mahlangu presides over his court, settling disputes within the community using the guidelines negotiated within customary and formal law. He will hear the complainant, then the opposition from the respondent. Then, considering the best interests of the community, he will deliver his verdict, which is binding.
