2014-10-27 00:00

A CEREMONY was held at eNyokeni royal palace at Nongoma at the weekend to celebrate the revival of a cultural relationship between the Zulu and Mkhize (abaMbo) royal houses.

The colourful ceremony was attended by members of the royal family, including King Goodwill Zwelithini, amakhosi, church leaders, mayors, councillors and government departments.

“Our intention as abaMbo to visit the Zulu royal family is to revive the relationship between the two families which was initiated by King Shaka and our ancestor, iNkosi Zihlandlo ka Gcwabe,” said Inkosi K.T. Mkhize, senior leader of the Isimahla traditional council.

He presented the king with a gift of 10 head of cattle to mark the occasion.
