Newly appointed Zulu King Misuzulu KaZwelithini was educated at St Charles College in Pietermaritzburg.

The new king attended St Charles College from grade eight and matriculated in 1996.

St Charles College principal Allen van Blerk was approached for a statement by The Witness in the wake of King Goodwill Zwelithini kaBhekuzulu’s death in March this year due to speculation at the time that Misuzulu was his most likely successor. The announcement was only made on Friday, after the memorial service of Queen Mantfombi Dlamini Zulu. “He [the King] was a boarder and a credit to his family and the College,” said Van Blerk in a statement in which he also expressed condolences to the Zulu royal family for their loss.
