King Goodwill Zwelithini in partnership with AfriForum

According to an article published by eNCA, the Zulu King, Goodwill Zwelithini, recently announced that he is in the process of strengthening his relationship with AfriForum, in the name of agriculture and food security for all South Africans.

The article reads that during the Umkhosi Welembe, an annual commemoration of Zulu King Shaka kaSenzangakhona, on Sunday, 7 October, in Durban’s Moses Mabhida Football Stadium, the King Goodwill Zwelithini greeted his supporters warm-heartedly and announced his partnership with the civil rights organisation, AfriForum.

It was stated that both parties strongly oppose the expropriation of land without compensation and this cooperation aims to promote agriculture. “The Zulu nation will not exist if we don’t have food. That is why I say farmers must come so we can discuss what we can do when we talk about agriculture and the availability of enough food in the land.

I am asking AfriForum to come and help us, as they have introduced themselves to me that they are willing to work with me and my father’s people to uplift agriculture in our land. Because government started to talk about land expropriation without compensation, farmers downed tools and there will be no food in South Africa.”

Furthermore, the King said that he is awaiting a followup meeting with President Cyril Ramaphosa to finalise their discussions on the land under the control of Ingonyama Trust.
