In her last will and testament, Queen Mantfombi Dlamini Zulu has recommended that her eldest son, Prince Misuzulu Zulu be appointed as the next King of the Zulu nation.
The late regent’s will was read out on Friday evening after her memorial service.
Prince Misuzulu Zulu, the eldest son of South Africa’s late Zulu king Goodwill Zwelithini and his recently departed regent queen Shiyiwe Mantfombi Dlamini Zulu, has been named the new monarch of the Zulu nation.
King Zwelithini passed away in March this year after half a century on the throne following a battle with an illness. His wife died in April, weeks after she was named interim successor to her husband.
Prince Misuzulu Zulu, whose name means “strengthening the Zulus”, was named heir in the last will of his deceased mother and queen, Shiyiwe Mantfombi Dlamini Zulu.
