According to the Sunday Times, King Zwelithini’s will was read on Friday, in which he declared his successor.
According to the newspaper, the heir will come from the family of Queen Mantofombi, King Mswati’s niece, who married King Zwelithini in 1977.
The next king will be Prince Misuzulu, Queen Mantfombi’s 47-year-old firstborn son, who has been hiding in the United States for years.
Except for the fact that he was studying in the United States, nothing is known about Prince Misuzulu.
Princess Nombuso told Prince Mongusuthu Buthelezi that the family needed a moment to speak to their mothers, so he was not present when the will was read.
On Friday evening, he received a call from Jerome Ngwenya, the chair of the Ingonyama Trust, informing him that the will had already been read.
According to reports, Misuzulu may be the next to sit on the Zulu Throne after a will was read to the royal family. The will was read aloud in a closed-door family meeting
