High Court judgment clears Prince Misuzulu for next amaZulu crown

By Chris Makhaye

The stage is now set for Prince Misuzulu KaZwelithini to be crowned as the next king of amaZulu.

This, after KwaZulu-Natal Deputy Judge President Isaac Madondo dismissed three separate applications on Wednesday by the late King Goodwill Zwelithini’s first wife, Queen Winifred Dlamini-Zulu, her two daughters, Princess Ntandoyenkosi Zulu and Princess Ntombizosuthu Zulu-Duma, and another by Prince Mbonisi Zulu, the late king’s brother.

King Goodwill Zwelithini died in March last year in a Durban hospital after suffering a Covid-related illness. In his will, he nominated his wife, Queen Mantfombi Dlamini-Zulu, as the regent. But Queen Mantfombi Dlamini-Zulu died less than a month after the death of her husband. In her will, which was read after her funeral, she nominated her son Prince Misuzulu as the next king of amaZulu.

Since this nomination, the amaZulu royal family has been split down the middle, with some supporting the ascension of Prince Misuzulu KaZwelithini, and others opposing it.
