Socialite and businessman Sifiso Zulu, who is a director of 29 companies and close corporations, and a member of Zulu royal family, claims he is a man of straw with no money to settle an almost R5 million debt he owes to provincial development finance provider Ithala.

And unless he can explain to the Durban High Court how he intends to pay back the money, he will be provincially sequestrated and his financial affairs will be put under the scrutiny of a court-appointed trustee. - Full article

KwaZulu-Natal Premier Dr Zweli Mkhize announced during his budget vote on the royal household that the trust was ready to oversee the Zulu monarch's budget and expenditure.
The seven-member trust, chaired by Judge Jerome Ngwenya, is expected to make the Zulu royal household self-sufficient.

Statue of king Shaka Zulu removed from the Durban airport

A statue of Shaka Zulu has been removed from the new airport in South Africa's port city of Durban after complaints about the warrior king's portrayal.
In it he is unarmed and surrounded by cattle, but some think the king should have a spear, shield and wild animals.
The current Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini has also questioned the statue's airport location, reports say.
Once an agreement has been reached on a new design, the statue will be put back up, officials say. - BBC

Princess brought a case against King to court

The Commission on Gender Equality (South Africa) is being asked to rule on royal succession after Princess NomaXhosa Sigcawu of the AmaGcaleka Kingdom brought a case before them arguing that, as daughter of the senior consort to the late King Zwelidumile, she should have succeeded to the tribal throne instead of her brother, currently King Xolilizwe. The CGE is put in a rather difficult position by this since the laws and constitution of South Africa do tend to go against the spirit of monarchy and royal succession but nonetheless allow these to exist within the framework of the state in an unofficial capacity. The leader of the Congress of Traditional Leaders has said that royal succession is about tradition and the laws of the government have no bearing on them.

I would like to know do the royalty of South Africa have to pay taxes? I think that it would be strange to make royalty pay taxes as I thought that it was the King or Queen's government, that is almost like paying taxes to one's self?? That doesn't make much sense to me. It would also make sense if the royalty held diplomatic immunity.

The Queen of the Mankessim Traditional Area in Ghana, Nana Ama Amissah III, has called for the preservation of African cultures for the benefit of future generations.
The Queen said this when she called on the King of the Kingdom of Swaziland, His Majesty , and the Queen, Her Majesty Indlovukazi, in Swaziland.
The Mankessim Queen was invited to the Kingdom by the Royal Family to witness the ‘Reed Cultural Dance’ festival of maidens from across Swaziland and to explore the possibility of organising a cultural exchange programme between the Kingdom and her traditional area. - Ghana News

24 years old commoner Zola Mafu is to become the King of Zulu Zwelithini's sixth wife.
They have a daughter already. - Times of Swaziland
Times Live article claimes that it's a boy

The Zulu King has reportedly paid lobola to the Mafu family, at a cost to the South African taxpayer of E264 000. The ceremony was reportedly delayed by disagreements between Zola’s parents, over who should receive the lobola. The situation was so serious that the Swazi royal household was said to have intervened and helped calm the feud, according to Ilanga.Princess Mantfombi, sister to King Mswati III, is Zwelithini’s first wife.

The money spent on Mafu’s lobola was revealed last year during a budget speech by the KwaZulu-Natal Finance and Economic Development MEC, Zweli Mkhize.
During his speech, Mkhize announced that King Zwelithini’s annual budget for 2009 had been increased by E3 million to E42.4 million.
