Zulu King Misuzulu Is Not Ill
Buthelezi says the Zulu king Misuzulu is not sick.
The traditional prime minister of the Zulu nation Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi has assured the nation that King Misuzulu KaZwelithini is not sick despite misconceptions that he is. IFP MP Liezl van der Merwe clarified what Buthelezi had meant in a statement shared on Wednesday.
Buthelezi had addressed a prayer service in Ulundi which was wrongly interpreted that the monarch was sick. Further reports reveal that the king spent the Easter holidays in the Kingdom of Eswatini. He was spotted with his fiancée, Nozizwe Mulela (Okala Makhubu), in a jovial mood. He did not look sick at all.
The statement read, “The Traditional Prime Minister to the Zulu Monarch and Nation, Prince Buthelezi attended a prayer service this morning at St Mary’s Anglican Church in Nkonjeni where he received 55 church leaders from various denominations affiliated with the KwaZulu-Natal Christian Council.”
“Thanking them for their prayers for him, for the nation and for his majesty the king, Prince Buthelezi spoke of the spiritual onslaught his majesty is facing. He described him as unwell, meant to be understood as spiritually unwell, due to the many attacks, struggles and personal turmoil his majesty has faced in recent months, which has been in the public domain.”
“Regrettably this comment has been misinterpreted, as the king being physically ‘unwell’, which is not the case,”
