KwaNongoma – The new AmaZulu King, iNkosi Misuzulu KaZwelithini, is set to begin his official duties on Thursday.
The King was named to take over the throne by his late mother, Queen Shiyiwe Mantfombi Zulu.
The government is preparing for his coronation.
“When we offer services we must give services to all people irrespective of which political party they belong to but more importantly with concern to the royal house: we need to continue supporting the royal house as it has been happening,” said KwaZulu Natal premier Sihle Zikalala.
“The issue of meddling with the issues (of the royal house), there is nothing that we have done to interfere on issues of the royal house,” he added.
