Coronation is the climax of all other rituals customs, but already by that time the king is in the throne.

Dr Gugu Mazibuko, Cultural expert and UKZN lecture spoke to the Newzroom reporter; "Entering the kraal is a cetred ritual that precede the coronation, but however, each and every king palace they have cattle kraals. Therefore the ceremony that will take place next week is the final celebration of all other processes, but entering the kraal is when the king will get the blessings and communication with the nations ancestors and prayers will be conducted but other rituals are very private there are not for anybody consumption but for specific family members.

In the lead up to the coronation, many other celebrations for the monarch have been seen, including his marriage ceremony but at the same time there is also sort of not so good news within the royal family leading up to the coronation.
