Prince Misuzulu Zulu is the oldest surviving son of King Goodwill Zwelithini kaBhekuzulu and the probable heir apparent to the throne of the Zulu nation, since the death of his father on 12 March 2021.
No official confirmation has been given by the Zulu Royal Family of Prince Misuzulu’s status as the heir to the throne, with some members of the family calling the debate over successors premature.
At the funeral service, the late king’s sister, Princess Thembi Ndlovu stated that the Royal Family did not yet know who the next king would be and that the individual would be “chosen by God”.
Historically, Prince Misuzulu’s claim to the throne would have been automatic but the Zulu Kingdom now considers itself a constitutional monarchy, the leader of which must be appointed.
Following the recent media reports revealed that court papers had been filed in the Pietermaritzburg High Court challenging the validity of the late King Goodwill Zwelithini’s will.
The court challenge was launched by the late king’s first wife, Sibongile Winifred Dlamini, and the two daughters she had with the king, Princess Ntandoyenkosi and Princess Ntombizosuthu.
They sought to have the king’s will declared invalid and set aside, on the basis of what they claim is a fraudulent signature.
As an interim measure, they also filed a court application seeking to interdict the appointment of a new king or regent, pending the court’s ruling on the validity of the late king’s will.
