King Zwelithini’s widows pampered by KZN premier, given cars and renovated homes
Briefly News previously reported that the widows of the late King Goodwill Zwelithini received five cars from the KwaZulu-Natal provincial government this morning (17 December).
Sihle Zikalala, the Premier of the province, told the queens that their palaces will be renovated soon, after Covid-19 halted their previous efforts to complete the project.
“Our process was disrupted first by Covid-19 but second by allowing the royal house to go through the process of mourning," Zikalala said.
According to TimesLIVE, Zikalala's gift comes with one condition attached: that a new Zulu king must be appointed before the provincial government sponsors any of the royal house's functions.
