Legal bid to stop Prince Misuzulu’s ‘secret’ coronation

The brother of late Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini has claimed in court papers that the disputed heir to the throne, Prince Misuzulu Zulu, is being installed as monarch at a secret coronation to be held this Friday.

The king took six wives. Queen Dlamini-Zulu is said to have had elevated status because she was from Swazi royalty.She was appointed regent during the time of mourning, but passed away on April 29, paving the way for her eldest son to take over the throne. 

Prince Mbonisi, in his urgent application, wants the court to ban further steps which may be construed as recognising Misuzulu as king.He said he and others “learnt through the grapevine” about the coronation.He said because of division in the royal house over who should succeed, there was no trust among members.

“I, together with others, met to discuss the veracity of the rumours. We consulted our attorneys and sent letters to [Misuzulu and Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi] asking that they either confirm or deny what was going on.A ceremony cannot occur before a recognised certificate is published in the government gazette and the premier arranges the ceremony. headtopics.com

Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi]“They did not respond. I submit this supports the rumours.”He said if the coronation went ahead it would prejudice the outcome of the pending court applications and “further divide” the royal family.Buthelezi, who is traditional prime minister of the Zulu nation, is opposing the application and has denied that a coronation is being planned.

In his affidavit, he said only the royal houses of five reigning (now deceased) kings have any recognition.Prince Mbonisi and others had no right to call meetings and make decisions because he was not part of the “core structure” of the royal family.Buthelezi said he had publicly stated that there would not be a coronation until the court cases had been finalised and that Mbonisi was “rumour-mongering”.
