Nongoma - HUNDREDS of women from KwaZulu-Natal, Gauteng and Swaziland gathered at King Goodwill Zwelithini’s Khangela Palace in Nongoma, Zululand, for the Isivivane ceremony.
The event is a workshop where women spend five days advising each other about various matters.
The King’s sister-in-law Queen Thakasile said the workshop is meant to give married and unmarried women a platform to share ideas about how to deal with their personal and family challenges.
“We spend five days from Wednesday to Sunday talking among ourselves about how to handle our family affairs. Unmarried women who have children are part of the event because the King wants them to learn how to care for the young ones,” said Thakasile.
She the King had revived the ceremony about 12 years ago after it had been abandoned for years.
