AmaZulu King, MisuZulu kaZwelithini, has begun the process of getting married.

He sent a delegation to negotiate on his behalf and pay his dowry, in IsiZulu known as lobola, to the family of his queen-to-be in Newcastle, in northern KwaZulu-Natal, on Thursday.

The news of the lobola being paid to the mother of the king’s children has been confirmed by AmaZulu Traditional Prime Minister, Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi.

This comes days after the Zulu monarch’s Prime Minister rejected assertions that the King needed to be married to ascend the throne.
