Zulu King, Goodwill Zwelithini, has criticised the provincial government, stating that the government is not paying him enough as King.
It has been reported that Zulu King, Goodwill Zwelithini, gave this statement on Sunday while he was attending a King Shaka Zulu tribute in Stanger, also known as KwaDukuza, which is located in KwaZulu-Natal.
Briefly.co.za learned from timeslive.co.za that the Zulu King described this matter as a lack of financial appreciation and he went on to complain about not receiving a salary from the government.
According to reports, Zulu King, Goodwill Zwelithini, is paid over R1 million yearly, while he is also allocated a budget of around R60 million by the KwaZulu-Natal Office of the Premier.
However, the Zulu King believes that he is not being acknowledged by the government since they are not paying him. He went on to state that as the Zulu King, he deserves a salary from the government.
There have been reports that the Zulu King and the Royal Household’s financial matters were being focused on during the provincial budget speech which took place in April.
It has been reported that the Royal Household received around R58 million for this year and next year.
