Prince Mangosuthu said as the nation mourns the loss of lives, homes and property as a result of the recent floods that took place in the province of KwaZulu-Natal and the Eastern Cape, he said the main focus must be on the healing, rebuilding and restoring what has been lost. While making the Statement he said that His Majesty King Misuzulu has expressed his strong conviction that the celebration of his coronation must be postponed.

The Prince conveyed this to his Excellence President Cyril Ramaphosa on Wednesday afternoon before seeing this letter and deliberated on the same sentiments. He revealed that the President has formally responded to the letter and expressed the same views and a new date will be discussed beyond May 2022. The consultation we're done with the Royal Family as well and a new date which will still be announced was agreed upon. As the royal family and the Zulu nation, Prince Buthelezi has expressed their deepest sympathy to every family that has suffered the loss.

As the Royal family, they also mourn the loss of Princess Bonakele Jileka and her children who lost five of her them as the house collapsed on them. This tragedy is one among many others that have brought the county to its knees. After the letter and the postponement were made everyone expressed their opinions and said it is indeed a Kingship move and it does make a whole lot of sense. The tragedy happened in Many parts of KwaZulu-Natal and thus where the King rules and where his people are.

They as the royal family saw it fit to postpone the most anticipated event and mourn with the nation. The floods left many families homeless and the government and many other business people have made pledges to help the families with rebuilding their homes and also to bury their loved ones. The King could not have celebrated his coronation very well at a time like this.
