Princess Ntandoyesizwe Zulu married the late Bahurutshe Kingdom's Kgosi Oupa Moilwa. The two had met at a party in the Western Cape town of Beaufort West. Their traditional wedding took place on April 13, 2002, and their civil wedding took place on July 11, 2004. However, the pair split up in 2007, with Ntandoyesizwe returning to her mother's home. Kgosi Oupa Moilwa's ties to monarchy were questioned at the time due to unverified rumors. They eventually divorced. At the age of 44, Kgosi Oupa Moilwa died of cancer.

Moses Tembe was her second husband.

Ntandoyesizwe ZuluPrincess Ntandoyesizwe Zulu married Moses Tembe, a multi-millionaire businessman, in her second marriage. Lulu Tembe, Moses Tembe's first wife, died in 2014, leaving three children behind. Moses and Princess Ntandoyesizwe Zulu married soon after, and their five children, Zamatonga, Mbali, Nosipho, Nellie Tembe, and Vukile Tembe, formed a mixed family. Moses and Princess Ntandoyesizwe own and operate a variety of enterprises, including retail, engineering, tourism, manufacturing, shipping, maritime, and real estate.

However, tragedy struck the Tembe family in April 2021 when Anele (Nelli) Tembe died of a suspected suicide. Prior to her death, Nelli was engaged to AKA (Kiernan Jarryd Forbes), a South African rapper. Her father believes that drugs and alcohol may have had a factor in his daughter's death.

Ntandoyesizwe Zulu’s Stance on the Zulu’s Royal Tussle

Following the death of King Goodwill Zwelithini on March 12, 2021, his queen Mantfombi Dlamini (Great wife; her lobola was funded by the Zulu Nation) was named queen regent. After the three-month mourning period, she was to oversee the transition to the crown. On April 29, 2021, she died just a month after her husband. She would have surely nominated her son Ruler Misuzulu Zulu as the new king if she had lived. King Misuzulu Zulu's appointment as the next king should be uncontested because it was a constitutional monarchy and Queen Mantfombi Dlamini was the only wife with royal lineage (a princess of the Eswatini Kingdom).

Some members of the royal family, on the other hand, were opposed to his accession to the throne and had brought the matter to court, citing inconsistencies in the late king's will. Princess Ntandoyesizwe Zulu maintained her support for her brother, the new king, and called for unity and peace among the royal family in a speech read on his behalf.

With a population of 12 million people, the Zulu Kingdom has weathered the test of time. It has served as a protector of one of Africa's rich civilizations from the invasion by the west to apartheid and the current democratic dispensation. Members and structures will continue to evolve to align with the ever-changing nature of things, just like every other human organization. The future of this rich and colorful culture will only get better with people like Princess Ntandoyesizwe Zulu, who are ordinary but tenacious.
