The Amakhosi of KwaZulu-Natal refused to listen to Prince Mbonisi Zulu to halt all the ceremonies this year. King MisuZulu ruled out the banishment of these important events as a result of the Covid-19. Now Prince Mbonisi is opposing what the New King declared to continue. The news on Sunday Ilanga reported that Prince Mbonisi went around the Amakhosi areas and told them to stop all events and asked the leaders to let everyone that all events are canceled for the year 2021. Prince Mbonisi signed the statement on the 3rd of September, regardless of his statement the Reed Dance Continued as planned by King MisuZulu. The next event to take place is the Umkhosi Womhlanga, at Enyokeni in KwaNongoma.
The coming weekend the Zulu nation is waiting to celebrate the iLembe KwaDukuza. The ignorance of Prince Mbonisi's statement happened at the Amakhosi meeting which was held at Melmoth on Friday. The Amakhosi meet to discuss their relationship with the indunas and their assassins which are taking place in KwaZulu-Natal. At the meeting the statement by Prince Mbonisi was read, the reason for halting the ceremonies was to pay respect to the late King Goodwill Zwelithini kaBhekuZulu.
Inkosi Thanda Mzimela from Manzimeleni stood up and read the statement by Prince Mbonisi. As soon as he finished reading Inkosi Bhekizwe Biyela from Mahlaziyeni stood up and disputed and said Prince Mbonisi is not referring to them. He went on to say maybe he meant other regions, not his as they are two parts in the Royal Family. They even refused to pass the statement on to other regions as it carried information that was wrong and is against their King's orders.
Inkosi Biyela said they are not rebels, they know who their new King is Prince Thulani announced the King to them, and the letter on the table does not pertain to them. The same statement was delivered at a meeting held by inkosi at Mayville eThekwini on Wednesday and the attendants did not accept the message. They even agreed on not passing the statement further to other regions as it bared false news.
The spokesperson for the amakhosi Thanda Mzimela said that they respect the Royal family members, and they did not expect that such information could just be sent to them. They should have sent the Chairman for the Royal Family Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi.
Prince Mbonisi responded to the Langa journalist and said the amakhosi are confused they took the letter otherwise, he will fix the confusion. He will arrange a meeting with them and brief them on what is happening at the Royal Family and he asked the journalist to call him on Wednesday to get more information.
The journalist asked about the two messages one stating that the ceremonies are continuing and another saying they are halted for this year, which is which.
He said he is speaking for the Royal family and Prince Thulani is speaking for the King's office confirming that the ceremonies will go on as normal. The Royal family feud is far from over, now it is even further divided as the amakhosi are listening to the King and Prince Mbonisi speaks for other Royal family members who are against King MisuZulu.
