Description : Abstract
Meg Vaillancourt reports that Princess Zenani Dlamini (daughter of Nelson and Winnie Mandela) and her husband Prince Thumbumuzi Dlamini (son of the late King of Swaziland) will attend Boston University. Vaillancourt notes that the couple has expressed a desire to abstain from politics while attending the university. Vaillancourt's report includes footage of Zenani and Thumbumuzi Dlamini at a press conference. Zenani Dlamini answers questions about her parents. Vaillancourt's report is accompanied by footage of events in South Africa and by footage of Nelson Mandela (jailed South African leader). Vaillancourt notes that John Silber (President, Boston University) stirred up controversy when he awarded an honorary degree to Mangosuthu Gatsha Buthelezi (South African Zulu Chief) instead of Nelson Mandela. Vaillancourt's report includes footage of Silber awarding the degree to Buthelezi. Vaillancourt's report is accompanied by footage of Zenani and Thumbumuzi Dlamini walking on the campus of Boston University.
