Prime Minister Shimon Peres told Zulu chief Gatsha Buthelezi Wednesday that Israelis prayed for equal rights in South Africa and for coexistence between all the ethnic groups there. Peres met with the head of the Zulu tribe for the second time during Buthelezi’s week-long visit to Israel. Israel Radio reported that Israel will apparently participate in development projects in the Zulu tribal homeland, in the fields of water use and education.
