Former IFP leader and MP Mangosuthu Buthelezi has tested positive for COVID-19.
The IFP confirmed it in a statement.
His family says the 92-year old-veteran politician is being looked after by a capable medical team.
Buthelezi has diabetes.
Earlier this week he was informed that he had been in contact with a positive
case, and he thus took the precautionary measure of being tested, despite displaying no symptoms himself.
The family says Buthelezi is now self-isolating at home for the mandatory period.
They say they are pleased that he remains asymptomatic and is in good spirits at this stage."https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/s526x296/117409964_3422430097809350_8813422938454990047_n.jpg?_nc_cat=109&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=E-KjjXX3Je8AX9-IB-f&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&_nc_tp=7&oh=630d91ac2ba419c5dcb77ca93c62cd64&oe=5F55C502"
