South Africans not impressed

Netizens commenting on @ZANewsFlash's tweet are not pleased that Misuzulu is taking another wife.

Not a Peace Officer asked:

"How does polygamy help his people who need him now more than ever? He should focus on making KwaZulu-Natal a prosperous province in the country, especially in areas where they built on the Ingonyama Trust land."

"Our taxes are being abused."

Bryan asked:

"What has he done notably for the people from the first day he became king?"
