Parekh, who designed the super-priced suit for Buthelezi’s 90th birthday, says although everyone is fascinated by the price tag, it no longer becomes a gift if people put a price to it.
Parekh was touched by a BackChat message the Daily News received about his design.
“Buthelezi receives a suit of gold from Janak Parekh. Of all the people who receive expensive birthday gifts, Buthelezi is the most deserving. Only older people know that he worked all his life for the good of every race. He has never said anything bad about anyone. He wanted federal states in SA and there is no doubt this would have been the best option to limit corruption. SAM,” the BackChat read.
Parekh, now a Durbanite, said the suit took two months to create.
