Pretoria, South Africa | ALL AFRICA.COM | The Zulu royal house is in disarray again after the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria found that President Cyril Ramaphosa failed to follow due process in his recognition of Misuzulu KaZwelithini as King, according to News24, writes Melody Chironda for AllAfrica.
Judge Norman Davis delivered a judgment in the case that was brought to court by Misuzulu’s brother, Prince Simakade Jackson Zulu and the late King Zwelithini’s half-brother, Mbonisi Zulu, as they challenged the process followed to identify and appoint Misuzulu as the heir to the throne.
Previously, succession of the Zulu throne saw a bitter family feud over which overshadowed Misuzulu’s crowning ceremony. Misuzulu’s father, King Goodwill Zwelithini, died in March 2021 after a 50-year reign, leaving six wives and at least 28 children. The dispute over the throne in 2021 saw several members of the Zulu royal family vie for leadership.
