South African President Ramaphosa recognized the ownership of Zulu King Misuzulu Kazulithini (48) at a ceremonial meeting. This puts an end to the question of who is the rightful successor to King Zwelithini.
The traditional Zulu coronation took place in August. But Mizulu still needs recognition from the South African president to access an annual state allowance for his royal family of 3.6 million euros.
The meeting with President Ramaphosa took place at the Durban Stadium:
Zwelithini died last year after being king of the Zulu nation for fifty years. The vast majority of the 11 million Zulus live in South Africa. This makes them the largest population group in that country.
The new king’s mother would temporarily take over the honorary position after Zwelithini’s death, but she died two months later. She had named her son, Misuzulu, as heir to the throne. However, the preference for other members of the royal family went to the eldest son of King Zwelithini, Prince Semakadi. It now appears that the family has succumbed to the caliphate.
