King Goodwill Zwelithini Threatens War Over Ingonyama Trust Land.

Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini is both disappointed and enraged over the possibility of the Ingonyama Trust Act being either repealed or altered. He has scrutinized the ANC-led government for attempting to change the act, which became official in 1994 and denotes that some rural areas of Kwazulu-Natal be owned by the King and overseen by traditional leaders.

The Ingonyama Trust currently owns nearly 30% of the rural land in the Kwazulu-Natal province. King Zwelithini has cautioned the Zulu people not to trust the government, as they have “declared a war against all Zulus.” He has also stated that, if the act were to be changed, he would be forced to go to war.
