The late Zulu nation interim leader, Mantfombi Dlamini Zulu’s eldest son, Misuzulu Zulu was on Friday night announced as the new Zulu King.
The announcement was made at the Khangela Royal Palace in Nongoma where the will of the Queen was presented to the royal family.
Prince Misuzulu, who studied in the U.S., had arrived at his mother’s memorial service at the kwaKhangela Royal Palace in the company of some amabutho. Some royal family members said the announcement that Prince Misuzulu would be the new Zulu nation ruler had to be made yesterday to avoid further disputes within the royal family over the succession matter. The announcement followed a royal family meeting where the Queen’s will was read.
