Mangosuthu Buthelezi in hospital for medical tests

Each time there are reports that former IFP leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi is in hospital, concern and worry sets in as he is old and in frail health. Buthelezi, who has been deeply involved in the family and Kingship issues at the Royal Zulu Kingdom, has beaten all the odds, contracting coronavirus twice and some infections.

Reports have emerged again that Buthelezi has gone back to hospital, although even it is just for minor tests.

“It has somehow reached the ears of the media that Prince Buthelezi is currently in hospital. This is true. However, he is simply undergoing medical tests as he experienced high blood pressure on Monday night and subsequently felt unwell,” family spokesperson Bhekuyise Buthelezi said in a statement.

According to the family, on Tuesday afternoon the 93-year-old’s doctors felt it wise for him to be admitted to hospital for all the necessary checks, as this would also allow him to get some much-needed rest.

Buthelezi has been praised for being there for the Zulu Royal family following the passing of King Goodwill Zwelithini and his wife Mantfombi Dlamini. They both died a month apart following short illnesses.
