The Abantu Botho Congress (ABC) picketed in the Durban CBD on Monday to show their dissatisfaction over how government has handled the disputed Zulu kingship matter. Among the people oicketing n Durban The president of the ABC Philani “PG” Mavundla said they felt that the ANC-led government had failed to give King Misuzulu kaZwelithini the respect and recognition they believed he deserved.

Last month The Witness reported that the KwaZulu-Natal provincial government had distanced itself from the commemoration of all Zulu royal activities, pending the finalisation of the dispute over the throne.

This came after the President Cyril Ramaphosa decided not to officially grant the kingship status to King Misuzulu, pending the conclusion of the court matters challenging the validity of the will of the late Zulu monarch, King Zwelithini kaBhekuzulu. Some of the royal family members approached the high court in their bid to have the late king’s will nullified.
