King Misuzulu kaZwelithini’s coronation will be held in front of a crowd of over 40 000 people at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on Saturday, 29 October. President Cyril Ramaphosa will present the king with a certificate of recognition.
KING MISUZULU TO BE PRESENTED WITH CERTIFICATE OF RECOGNITION
According to the presidency, the certificate recognises King Miszulu as the King of the AmaZulu in terms of Section 8(1) of the Traditional and Khoi-San Leadership Act, No.3 of 2019.
The document confirms that the king is entrusted with the power to govern his area in terms of custom, customary and applicable laws.
King Misuzulu officially ascended to the throne after a traditional ceremony held at KwaKhangelamankengane Royal Palace in Nongoma on 20 August.
“President Ramaphosa issued the certificate to His Majesty earlier this year, and will, in accordance with a wish expressed by the Royal Family, formally hand over the certificate of recognition at Saturday’s ceremony,” said the presidency.
Ramaphosa will also deliver the keynote address at the ceremony, which is themed “LIPHUMILE ILANGA KWAZULU – THE SUN HAS RISEN ON THE ZULU NATION.”
King Misuzulu’s coronation will be attended by current and former heads of state and dignitaries. It is the first time the event is being held since the late King Goodwill Zwelithini kaBhekuzulu was coronated in 1971.
The local economy is expected to receive a boost of approximately R130 million as more than 80 000 visitors are expected to visit Durban.
