eThekwini Municipality Mayor Mxolisi Kaunda has wished the Muslim community well over the holy period of Ramadan.

“As you have entered a time of deep spirituality during a very difficult time when we face a worldwide pandemic, I wish you great strength and fulfilment as you observe a month of fasting, sacrifice, reflection and giving,” said Mayor Kaunda.
