Prince Simakade KaZwelithi, the first born of the late Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini ka Bhekuzulu has written a letter through his lawyers requesting South African President Cyril Ramaphosa to halt the preparations for the pending coronation of Misuzulu KaZwelithini as the next King of the Zulu nation.

The President recently issued a certificate recognising King Misuzulu ka Zwelithini as the rightful heir of AmaZulu Nation throne, a step that set in motion the preparations for the coronation.

The lawyers said: Our client has requested the reasons for the declaration from the President, and our intention is to launch review proceedings shortly after receipt of such reasons. We have no intention of delaying or dragging the matter out, and are amenable to agreeing an expedited review hearing in order that clarity and certainty can be obtained in relation to this important issue. In the light of the foregoing, we request your client's consent and undertaking not to proceed with any inauguration arrangements pending the finalisation of the review proceedings.

The Zulu throne has see three contenders Prince Buzabazi kaZwelithini, Prince Simakade kaZwelithini and the recently proclaimed King Misuzulu ka Zwelithini locking horns to succeed their father.
