Royal rebels reject King Misuzulu’s olive branch
The so-called Zulu royal rebels snubbed yet another peace offering made by King Misuzulu kaZwelithini to end the bitter feud in the royal household.
In the letters, they questioned why the meeting was held outside the premises of the royal household.
“He shouldn’t call himself and behave like a king because the issue of the throne is being contested,” read a letter from Princess Thembi.
Not for the first time, they accused Buthelezi of stoking the factions in the royal family.
The meeting, attended by 12 houses of the royal family, continued without Prince Mbonisi and Princess Thembi.
King Misuzulu said it pained him to see the royal family locked in an ongoing dispute over who is the legitimate king of the Zulu nation.
He told members of the royal family that fighting erupted when his father, King Goodwill Zwelithini kaBhezulu, and his mother, Queen Mantfombi Dlamini-Zulu, died earlier this year.
He pleaded for unity within the royal household.
“We must disown the people who did not attend this meeting. I urge you to embrace them because we are one family,” said King Misuzulu.
“I hope this is the last time we are holding a meeting of this nature today,” said King Misizulu.
He added: “It is painful when you followed all the procedures and have done things correctly, but some people tell you to start afresh”.
Police kept a watchful eye as the meeting went on inside the chambers of the old legislature.
King Misuzulu’s brother, Prince Simakade Zulu, is challenging the throne and has the backing of the royal rebels.
Despite his reign being threatened from every angle, King Misuzulu emerged from the meeting smiling.
As the royal family continue to clash with no end in sight, many have called for President Cyril Ramaphosa and Minister of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma to intervene.
