King Zwelithini calls for peace

2012-12-18 19:30

Johannesburg - King Goodwill Zwelithini has called for an end to political violence in KwaZulu-Natal, the Zulu Royal Household said on Tuesday.

"We cannot afford an image of a province wherein political intolerance is the order of the day."

He said there was a fear that the province was in danger of slipping back into the violence that had wracked it in the past.

His household said Zwelithini "will do everything in his power to ensure that the recurrence of such destructive behaviour is nipped in the bud.

"His Majesty is hopeful that our security machinery will take all necessary steps to ensure that peace prevails, and that any unruly elements found to be violating the rights of others will face the might of the law."

Zwelithini called on the clergy to assist political leaders in keeping peace in the province.

      Squeegee.pilot, how can you mock His Majesty that owns 33% of KZN? He is such a great leader, do you know what he has done for South Africa?

    Who Needs a King in a democracy ??? I can still understand why the English have one ( good for tourism ) and kinda like a live version of the bold and the beautiful . But in a country with some many poor people like South Africa , do you really need a king paid by tax money ?

    Ah I love politics-speak "unruly elements" - murderous thugs. "Pockets of dissidence" - burning, stoning, murderous thugs. "Unwanted tendencies" - thieves. Or the latest one "Alien tendencies" - people with longer, greener fingers than ours

      Annette Jacobs - 2012-12-19 08:17

      what rubish are you talking about? our King is not an worldly king full of his own so called borned king for the Zulu nation, No one not JZ the king or anyone is better than any person. What big houses farms or anything did he gave, for peace sake grow up and study real history

  • nettie.potgieter.5 - 2012-12-18 21:23

    If anybody can give one good resone why Zwelithini must get R40mil plus per year and then have the mentality to ask for money to treat his women with extras while other kings don't demand anything. I am not against kingdoms as long as they don't suck the poor dry.

      Mvuselelo Mnguni - 2012-12-18 21:28
