The royal family declared King Masuzulu as heir to the throne following the death of his father, King Goodwill Tswelithini last March and the death of Queen Regent Mtfombi Dlamini a month later.


In March of this year, President Cyril Ramaphosa officially recognized Miss Zulu in terms of customary law and custom as the head of the Zulu monarch.

“Since the President of South Africa has recognized and announced His Majesty’s position, the King has ascended the throne de facto and de jure,” Buthelezi said.

The event will be attended by members of the royal family and Amakhosi ukungena esibaeni an event. Buthelezi said members of the public could also attend the ceremony.

Ramaphosa’s formal presentation of the certificate to the King during his coronation at the Moses Mabid Stadium in Durban has yet to be announced.

King Masuzulu said the venue chosen was more than suitable for the presentation of the certificate.
