The royal house has confirmed the passing of King Zwelithini, who passed away this morning on 12 March 2021 at the age of 72, after being in hospital for more than a month
The Congress of Traditional Leaders of South Africa has described Amazulu King, Goodwill Zwelithini, as an exemplary leader whose guidance was well-sought after.
“One of the giants of the institution of royalty in Africa has passed on. An exemplary leader in terms of personifying the dignity of the institution of traditional leadership. It’s really saddening to hear him passing at the age of 72 because we were looking forward to him giving guidance as he was one of the most senior in SA.”
