"I was in Blantyre and Kenya with the king Bulelani Lobengula. He was recognised officially by the United Nations (UN) and he was also officially recognised by the African Union (AU)," Ndiweni told the Southern News.

Ndiweni said over 800 traditional leaders in the Sadc have endorsed the Ndebele Kingdom.

"We in Zimbabwe are behind, the horse has bolted already, and it is done. We may talk about little things in Zimbabwe but internationally he (Bulelani) has been recognised by the traditional leadership in Sadc, over 890 traditional leaders," he said.
