KING ZWELITHINI’S REIGN TO CONTINUE GUIDING THE ZULU NATION – BUTHELEZI
- Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi said while the Zulu nation was grieving, King Goodwill Zwelithini’s reign would continue to guide his people for generations to come.
Buthelezi was speaking at the king’s memorial service in KwaNongoma in KwaZulu-Natal on Thursday. The Zulu king was interred during the early hours of Thursday morning in a private ceremony only attended by close male relatives.
Dignitaries have descended on the royal palace to pay their final respects to the Zulu monarch.
- Buthelezi said the Zulu king led his nation with dignity.
“His Majesty’s reign continued an unbroken lineage of kings. Indeed, we’re protected by the shield for which our kings and ancestors probably waged war.”
