Thembi Zulu Ndlovu cause of death
The princess first came to prominence in March last year when she called a parallel press conference ahead of the funeral of the late King Goodwill Zwelithini and enraged Inkosi Mangosuthu Buthelezi, the monarch-driven’s traditional prime minister, over the funeral programme. At the memorial service for the late king, she raised an eyebrow when she said only God knows who the next king of the Zulu nation will be. This was the beginning of their struggle for the rise of King Misuzulu.
How did Thembi Zulu Ndlovu die?
She wanted Zwelithini’s illegitimate son, Prince Simakade kaZwelithini, to become the next king of the AmaZulu nation. She passed away at a time when the faction known as the dissident royals had already lodged a complaint with the Gauteng High Court to challenge President Cyril Ramaphosa’s decision that MisuZulu was the reigning king of AmaZulu. The faction maintains that the king cannot be nominated by will, but that the core of the royal family and the royal council appoint the next king.
