Video of Zuma & AmaButho leader who died. Look what was spotted on Msholozi that sparked debate

The previous head of Zulu regiments, Zihogo Maguzumela Nhleko, also known as Mgilija, died on Monday evening at his home land in Nongoma, Kwa-Zulu Natal. "We read about Ubab Mgilija's passing with amazement and sorrow," said Injeje Yabanguni, a cultural group based in KwaZulu-Natal. We are mourning the loss of a zealous advocate of Zulu tradition and the preservation of African culture."

He was indeed the leader of the Zulu regiments until his removal in July 2021, when the AmaZulu royal house suspected him of bringing Amabutho to Nkandla without the royal house's permission to defend former President Jacob Zuma against his detention.

Mgilija was a long-serving commander-general of Amabutho kaZulu, and he was known as a staunch traditionalist who took no prisoners (AmaZulu regiments). For more than two decades, he was a loyal servant and a warrior to the late monarch. He gained unexpected popularity and public admiration when he led throngs of Amabutho to retrieve the mortal remains of the late AmaZulu ruler, who had died in Durban's Chief Albert Luthuli Hospital.See the source image

In order to follow Ama- Zulu tradition and cultural beliefs, Amabutho had to travel almost 300 kilometers from the king's royal palace of KwaKhethomthandayo in KwaNongoma, northern KwaZulu-Natal, to Durban. Before the king's remains could be transported to his residence, Amabutho had to be the one to see and accept them, as was traditional.

The death of the AmaButho leader has left Duduzile Zuma, Jacob Zuma's daughter, in a state of shock. She expressed her sentiments on social media by releasing a video of the leader accompanied by former President Jacob Zuma. These two leaders appreciate and express their culture in this video.

People expressed concern in the comments section about Jacob Zuma not wearing a mask at all. This is completely unacceptable, especially coming from a country's leader. He should set a good example.See the source image
