The Pretoria High Court yesterday ordered President Cyril Ramaphosa to appoint an investigative committee to investigate and provide a report into allegations that the identification of King Misuzulu kaZwelithini was not made in terms of customary laws and customs.

The Court has ordered that President Ramaphosa’s decision to recognise King Misuzulu under the Leadership Act is unlawful and invalid.

However, the court has said that the ruling is not about who should be the king of Amazulu.

The court application was brought by Prince Simakade Zulu – the late King Goodwill Zwelithini’s firstborn son.

Simakade said President Ramaphosa had acted hastily in certifying his half-brother as the Zulu King.
