President Cyril Ramaphosa has hailed the wife of Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) leader, Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi for playing a key role in helping to shape South Africa into a democratic country.

Ramaphosa was speaking at the funeral service of Princess Irene Thandekile Buthelezi at the Ulundi Stadium in northern KwaZulu-Natal.

Princess Irene died on Monday after a long illness.

Ramaphosa says she chose a life of service at a young age when she started to train as a nurse.

He also praised the Buthelezi family for rising above the pain they underwent when some of Prince Mangosuthu and Princess Irene’s children died of HIV/Aids.

Ramaphosa said they transcended their pain and brought a message about HIV/Aids to the people of South Africa.
