Song and dance was the order of the day in Nongoma, as thousands of maidens accompanied by the Amabhutu made their way to collect the body of the AmaZulu King Goodwill ll Zwelithini. The whole proceedings  became a celebration of the life and times of the King.

King Goodwill Zwelithini was laid to rest yesterday. In a ceremony that will be presided over by men only. A number of dignitaries arrived at KwaNongoma to pay their last respects.

However, several South Africans have been bothered by what’s going on at one of the homesteads where one of the King’s wives live. Many are saying there isn’t much activity at Kwangelamankengane Royal Palace. This is where the King’s 3rd wife Queen Mantfombi resides. They have 8 children. Queen Mantfombi is also the sister of King Mswati the 3rd. She’s the only royalty.

There are people who are saying that Queen Mantfombi’s homestead should be abuzz with activity since she is the only wife with royal blood in her veins. Some even went as far as saying that it’s a good thing that the next king will be from one of her children as to carry the royal blood into the royal house.
