The legal battle between King Misuzulu and his other faction of the royal family took an ugly turn last week as the request to stop Misuzulu from speaking was turned down by the court.
King Misuzulu was scheduled to address his people in commemoration of the battle of Isandlwana and Royal rebels asked the court to stop him but the court dismissed the request. Some members of the AmaZulu royal house sought a court interdict to prevent the prince from speaking asking at the event in the province. They argued that King MisuZulu is not supposed to address any royal events since there is still an ongoing court battle for the kingship.
In a separate bid, the late King Goodwill Zwelithini’s first wife, Queen Sibongile Winifred Zulu, wants the courts to declare that she is entitled to 50% of the late monarch’s wealth. The queen’s daughters, Princess Ntandoyenkosi and Ntombizosuthu, are alleging forgery on their late father’s will, which gave the late Queen Mantfombi Dlamini-Zulu the title to be regent. Senior council Nigel Redman argued for both parties. Redman revealed that all lines and movements on the signature shape full, wobble, and vibrate. He suggested that the signature seem to have been signed by a drunk person or a child who could have been asked to imitate the Late King's signature. At the same time, Prince Mbonisi Zulu filed papers to halt what was alleged to be a secret coronation of Misuzulu kaZwelithini asking.
With all parties have made their arguments, attention will now shift to the presiding judge, while many are hoping that the judgments will also indicate a way forward in the succession matter. Many people of KwaZulu-Natal including the Royal family are waiting to hear the outcome of the whole matter. All serious arguments have been attended to and now it's up to the ruling charge to give a verdict. The infighting and contending have been going on for too long everyone wants a way forward so that the whole thing can come to pass.
