A GROUP of traditional leaders is pushing for the establishment of a provincial "house of traditional leaders", but the DA-controlled Western Cape government has rejected the idea, saying there was no money to set it up.
The Western Cape and Gauteng are the onlyprovinces that do not have houses of traditional leaders.
Spokesman Mawethu Ndude for the Western Cape Integrated Indigenous and Traditional Leaders said a house of traditional leaders would be able to represent the province's Khois, Namas and Ngunis to secure their cultural practices.
He says his group represented 40 traditional chiefs, including 14 Khoi chiefs. Chiefs recognised by the government earn R15 000 a month.
