King Misuzulu (back row, second from right) embarked on an anti-poverty campaign in Nongoma, where he distributed food parcels to the local community.

AmaZulu King, Misuzulu kaZwelithini, on Sunday called on police to arrest those who perpetrated the racially-charged violence which resulted in the death of more than a hundred people in KZN.

Speaking during an anti-hunger campaign in Nongoma, northern KwaZulu-Natal, King Misuzulu kaZwelithini said while looting and vandalism was unacceptable, those who killed people in Phoenix north of Durban and other areas in the province used the riots as an excuse to “murder innocent people”.

“What they have done is criminal and law enforcement agencies should ensure that the perpetrators are arrested.”
