KZN govt says it won’t be taking position on Zulu royal succession court judgment

The KwaZulu-Natal government will not be drawn into taking a position on the Pretoria High Court judgment on the issue of the Zulu royal succession, saying the matter is for the Presidency.

This came after the High Court ruled in favour of the king’s elder brother, Prince Simakade, who believed President Cyril Ramaphosa was hasty in recognizing the king in terms of the Traditional and Khoi-San Leadership Act.

“The court pronounced that the matter was not about who is on the throne but was about the processes, which the president is the authority in dealing with those matters,” KwaZulu-Natal Premier Nomusa Dube–Ncube said.

At the same time, King Misuzulu kaZwelithini also commented on the matter at a public event he attended during the week, saying despite the court judgment, AmaZulus knew who their king was.

Those backing Prince Simakade accused the president of fuelling tensions in the royal family.
