Will the new Zulu king wield his father’s political influence?

“Political leaders of all persuasions regularly sought his advice, including me,” said President Cyril Ramaphosa during his eulogy to Goodwill Zwelithini.

After a 50-year reign, the Zulu king died of Covid-19 on 12 March 2021 at the age of 72. Ramaphosa said: “His Majesty was one of our most revered traditional leaders.”

The South African constitution recognises the role and status of traditional leaders, but republican rule prevails throughout the country.
