President of the ABC Philani Mavundla (middle) leads a march in Durban to show their dissatisfaction over how government has handled the disputed Zulu kingship matter.

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.
