Late Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini’s daughters bid to stop coronation of Prince Misuzulu as Zulu King in court


It seems peace is not yet restored in the Royal palace, on Friday the high court in Pietermaritzburg is expected to hear an application from the late King Goodwill Zwelithini’s two daughters as they want to stop the coronation of Prince Misuzlu as the new King of the Zulu nation.

Princess Ntombizosuthu Zulu-Duma and princess Ntandoyenkosi Zulu wants the court to execute the last will of the late King to be suspended.

The two princesses who are the daughters of Queen Sibongile Winifred Zulu wants the premier of KwaZulu-Natal restrain Prince Misuzulu from being recognised as the Zulu King. They also want president Cyril Ramaphosa not to issue the certificate of recognition to Prince Misuzulu as the Zulu king.

In the affidavit which was filled by Princess Ntandoyenkosi Zulu on Monday, she said that she and her sister brought an application on 20 April which seeks the court to suspend the late King’s will which states that Prince Misuzulu should be the next king of Zululand.

“When the applications were brought in chambers … my sister and I were not aware that the respondents and their legal representatives were intent on reading the later Her Majesty Queen Mantfombi Dlamini-Zulu’s testamentary will on Friday 7 May,” Princess Ntandoyenkosi said in her affidavit.

“In this respect the manner in which Prince Misuzulu Zulu has been elevated to the throne … also infringed upon my right as a member of the Zulu royal family to express my thoughts, opinions and beliefs as who should be isilo (king).”
