King Misuzulu kaZwelithini has conceded that attempts by some of Zulu royal family members to challenge his appointment is a sign of a crisis within the family.

Speaking during an interview with eNCA this week, the new Zulu nation monarch said one of his immediate tasks was to unite the royal family.

“I don’t have anybody in my family who I can say I dislike for any reason. I do believe in my family. I am here as part of my family and I will bring my family together to be able to show the Zulu people that unity within the family needs to begin at home.
