The annual financial budget for the Zulu Royal family has been reduced for the next financial year. The budget from the KwaZuluNatal government has been slashed by R5 million.
KwaZuluNatal Premier Sihle Zikalala allocated R66 million to AmaZulu King, King Misuzulu KaZwelithini and his family for the next financial year 2021/22.
Zikalala said they are working together with the Royal family in finalising and announcing the date for the coronation of his Majesty King Misuzulu KaZwelithini.
According to Zikalala the R66 million was allocated for the activities including the hosting of annual traditional and cultural events that preserve the Zulu culture.
Other events include King’s Coronation day and prayer day events. Misuzulu was announced as the new Zulu King following the passing of his parents King Goodwill Zwelithini kaBhekuzulu and Queen Mantfombi Dlamini Zulu.
