READ: Zulu King Life Is In Danger Once Again

The newly named Zulu King, Misuzulu kaZwelithini's life is in danger once more after the South African Police Service (SAPS) has announced around on Saturday around 9pm that they are immediately withdrawing his entire VIP protection squad. This withdrawal includes the recalling all SAPS officers guarding.

The KwaKhangelamankengane royal palace in Nongoma is where he is currently residing. According to the Prime Minister, Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi, the reason for the withdrawal is that the new king has not been officially installed by government, so he cannot be afforded VIP protection.

Buthelezi slammed that saying that the service is provided on basis of threat, not status. Both Eswatini and Zulu monarch has condemned the unilaterally decision.

There were squabbles when he was announced that he has been chosen to be the new king. He had to be whisked away. There are some who didn't want him to ascend to the throne. The king has to be protected at all times.
