Opinion divided on King Goodwill Zwelithini’s legacy
While some label him a ‘useful idiot in the hands of the apartheid government’, others say he was a custodian of Zulu culture

The death of Zulu king Goodwill Zwelithini ka Bhekuzulu marks the closure of a 50-year long chapter for a powerful nation in SA.

Zwelithini led the Zulus during apartheid and political violence as SA’s transition to democracy approached with continuous clashes between culture and the constitution…

Mondli Makhanya is the editor-in-chief City Press. Makhanya said that King Zwelithini was “apartheid’s useful idiot” I’m the hands of the apartheid government. Allegedly, on the eve of South Africa becoming a democracy, King Zwelithini made an agreement with the National Party to reduce poor people to second class citizens.

The National Party is the party that implemented apartheid. The NP was founded in 1914 and disbanded in 1997.

King Zwelithini has never challenged the apartheid injustices at all. All he cared about was having power and control over KZN.

Even though majority of people agreed with Makhanya, they thought that it was very inappropriate and disrespectful to call him out when he is no longer here to defend himself.
