King Misuzulu kaZwelithini.

The Zulu monarch is unhappy with the disposal of a BMW 7 Series which was used by the late King Goodwill Zwelithini kaBhekuzulu. King Misuzulu kaZwelithini said the car, which will be disposed of by the Ingonyama Trust, should be preserved, as it was a heritage artefact.

The royal household spokesperson Prince Thulani Zulu said even though he had not discussed the matter with the King-in-waiting in detail, it would not be a good thing to see the late king’s vehicle being auctioned in public.

The vehicle was taken back by the Ingonyama Trust, as it has reached the stipulated mileage accorded to government officials and the royal household.
