King Goodwill Zwelethini has threatened government with war if it does not leave the Ingonyama Trust alone when it comes to land expropriation.

In a rallying speech, the King reminded the Zulu people to think deeply about how they should remember to protect this land. He added that they must remember they are Zulu first, regardless their profession, reported EWN.

He has warned the government not to provoke the Zulu nation and again reminded them that KwaZulu Natal is prepared to become its own state, if threatened.

Tweeps offer their own sentiments about his land.

It would seem though, that not all his subjects share his sentiments, and leader of the Congress of Traditional Leaders of South Africa, Nkosi Nhlakanipho Maphumulo, has stated that the majority of people on this land don’t have a problem with the notion of land redistribution.

“The majority of the people living on that land don’t have a problem. I’m talking about the majority, you cannot tell me about a small minority of people who want to impose their own way on us, that cannot happen. We live in a democracy here,” he said.

Briefly.co.za reported yesterday on how the Zulu king had called a meeting to discuss the issue of land expropriation.

The call for a meeting follows after the Zulu king wanted to meet with President Cyril Ramaphosa to discuss the government's plans.
