Two of the King's daughters are now planning to request an interdict to put a stop to the execution before its validity is verified.
The Zulu Royal Family has been shaken by allegations that AmaZulu King Goodwill Zwelithini's will was forged. The decision of the King's first wife to prevent the coronation of a new monarch is said to have aggravated the situation.
Princess Ntandoyenkosi and Princess Ntombizosuthu, the King's daughters from his first marriage, argue that the will in the possession of the royal family lawyer, Jerome Ngwenya, could be forged. They now plan to request an injunction to halt the execution until the validity of the document is verified.
The news comes as mourners gather at the Royal Palace in Nongoma to pay their respects to Queen Mantfombi Dlamini Zulu, the Zulu nation's regent.
To accommodate the mourners, a marquee has been erected outside KwaKhangelamankengane.
The two daughters have hit out at some of the clauses in the late king's will; saying they infringe on the rights of their mother on the basis of her being in a polygamous marriage.
Clause 12 of the king's will stipulates that any of his wives who challenges the will in court, will loss all their share of the estate.
"A reading of clause 12 leads to the conclusion that the writer of the last will and testament of the late Isilo wanted to terrify and to force everyone to submit to whatever was contained in the will lest they be disinherited. These are not the actions of our father," A statement by Princess Ntandoyenkosi and Princess Ntombizosuthu.
While Buthelezi is yet to reveal the next Zulu king, royal sources told Independent Media yesterday that the monarch will do so after the memorial service. The next Zulu king is expected to be 47-year-old Prince Misuzulu, the son of Dlamini-Zulu and King Goodwill Zwelithini.
According to the sources, this is being done to avoid a leadership vacuum that "could be abused and used to split the royal family."
