Report: ED says no to Ndebele King

President Mnangagwa

Report: ED says no to Ndebele King. He was addressing a Zanu-PF Midlands Provincial Coordinating Committee meeting in Gweru over the weekend. The national leader also made sensational claims he received a letter from the last Ndebele King Lobengula‘s grandson thanking him for recognising his grandfather’s army general.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa says his government will not allow the reviving of a Ndebele king or any other kingdom under his rule.

He however did not disclose who the said grandson was and the contents of the letter. “Zimbabwe is a republic, there are people who wanted to revive the Ndebele Kingdom in Matabeleland, and we said no, we cannot have a kingdom in a republic,” Mnangagwa told cheering Zanu-PF loyalists.

“Zimbabwe is a republic, there can only be chiefs not kings, senior and junior, different levels but there are chiefs. “I got a letter on Wednesday from the grandson of King Lobengula saying thank you, President, for recognising Matshobana Khumalo, my great, great uncle. That’s what is done.

“He did not write a letter saying he wants to be king. No, he wrote a letter appreciating how we have recognised a general of my grandfather Lobengula or Mzilikazi, that’s what is done.”

Lobengula was the second King of the Ndebele people after the death of Mzilikazi and signed the Rudd concession in 1888. It is reported that he died in 1894.

In March 2018, the Bulawayo High Court blocked the planned coronation of Bulelani Khumalo as the new Ndebele King after self-imposed King Peter Zwide KaLanga Khumalo successfully won an interdict stopping the ceremony.

The traditional ceremony was slated for Barbourfields Stadium in Bulawayo. The government had argued that there was no law in the country allowing the establishment of a monarch.

The Royal Crown Trust on behalf of relevant chiefs and traditional leaders had chosen Bulelani as the successor to the throne. Mthwakazi Republic Party and pressure group had for long advocated a breakaway from Zimbabwe to form the Matabele Kingdom.
