The South African high court has rejected an attempt to prevent the coronation of Misuzulu KaZwelithini as Zulu king, saying he is undisputedly considered to be the heir to the throne. The Zulu nation has been without a leader for almost a year after the death of King Goodwill Zwelithini. In addition to the ruling that the coronation of Prince Misuzulu can go ahead, Justice Isaac Madondo also dismissed a claim by the first of the king’s six wives, for 50% of the estate.
