Ndebele "King" Plans March On State House


Self-styled Ndebele King, Mzilikazi II, real name Stanley Raphael Khumalo, has notified President Emmerson Mnangagwa of his intentions to take over State House in Bulawayo.

In a letter dated 12 May directed to Mnangagwa, which he said he submitted through the Zimbabwean embassy in South Africa, Khumalo said he will lead “his” people who are based in South Africa back home.

Khumalo said the Bulawayo State House does not belong to Mashonaland (Zimbabwe) but to his country which he calls Mthwakazi. The letter read:

It is, therefore, announced that his Royal Mzilikazi II shall be leading a peaceful, but massive crusade of his people suffering in South Africa back to their home country, Mthwakazi.

The crusade shall start from Johannesburg on May 28 and arrive in Bulawayo the following day.

His majesty shall address the nation in the newly-revived, free and independent State of Mthwakazi on May 29.

His Royal Majesty shall thereafter move into the State House in Bulawayo on the same day as his official residence and begin to rule over his kingdom.

Khumalo has previously tried to take over State House but was blocked by the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP). The letter said:

The territory, 10km east of the Jameson line as described, which territory is legally a part of the Royal Kingdom of Mthwakazi, shall become the boundary of the independent state of Mashonaland, alias Zimbabwe.

Please note Mr President, the Ndebele people are not unaware of your brutality and your lack of respect for Ndebele life with your government, your security personnel and with the help of the quiet diplomacy of the British government.

Contacted for comment on Wednesday by NewsDay, Zimbabwe’s ambassador to South Africa, David Hamadziripi said he had not yet received the letter.

Meanwhile, Khumalo is not the only claimant to the Ndebele Kingdom. There are other claimants too, Messrs Bulelani Collins Khumalo and Peter Zwide Khumalo who are both based in South Africa.

Yes let's concentrate on removing our perennial enemy of Zimbabwe, which is zanupf and leave this tribal division. its not the shona people alone who can rule this country. Any other tribe can rule Zimbabwe, even much better than the shonas, so don't speak nonsense.

we don't want to hear this nonsense, that only the Shona people should rule this country. we are also capable of ruling this country, even better.

I think this whole issue needs him Mzilikazi 2 to clarify about his roots but what I know 80% of Zimbabweans are not from this land , if you find yourself speaking ask your about your great Grandfather's roots you will find out he was from a Namibian father and Swazi mother so brush off the owners of this land passed on long back , those who are living right now don't know nothing , we are all Zimbabweans period period

We are the City of King and Queens, the land of honey and Gold.We are smart and clean because we bath running water and we drink water from our taps, we don't have zvibhorani at our houses. We are the Capital City, the cleanest in Zimbabwe and we are not interested in witchcraft.

God bless Mthwakazi and King Khumalo, we will join the march.

Tommorow is another day day full of surprise and new things where are you prophets why you didn't prophesy about this. Zimbabwe belongs to us all but some have put it into their pockets .God Creator of Heaven and Earth if you does exist help us why became see
1: many have become thieves and prostitutes because of this called politics
2: some of Zimbabweas have become slaves in foreign lands because heartless culprits in the name of politics
3: some have suffered undescribable death namely xenophobia , operation dudula and under guma guma sleepless nights under bridges eating donated peas beans umm yeah for real Zimbabweans has become poor Olive Twist they do ask for more porridge.
Lord Jesus Christ help this country cause very soon we are becoming wild to survive our leaders they have taken all to themselves the prophets are saying it is not government 's responsibility to create employment so what shall we do . Only you the Lord you are our last hope cause we voted for Tsvangirai thinking that things we will be fined but they killed him now Chinotimba is doing good for the people they want him dead too so all good people they end up dead because of this Zimbabwe.
Father who is in heaven help Zimbabwe so that they may not sin because of porverty and hunger

@Asalif, judging from the regular and voluminous comments you're writing on this platform, one can easily conclude that your daily schedule is only about Pindula comments, Pindula comments alone and nothing else. It looks like you're a full-time comment writer on Pindula ! You may be interested to know that some "writers" like the self-proclaimed crowd favourite - WILLIAM SONBOY CHINEMBIRI aka BUSH LAWYER or CDE KUFA KWANGU ZVAROVA, HULK HOGAN, THE INCREDIBLE YELLOW HAWK /(RELOADED), SPONONO, VYBZ KARTEL, MBOKO, Tkt, Tsitsipasi and many others had their respective characters torn apart and crushed like lice by one @INDEPENDENT POLITICAL SUPREMO, a character assassin par excellence. It's a matter of time before this assassin pounce on you....I tell he/she is as ruthless as an elephant ! Ita toti toti chamhamha, otherwise your "Asalif" character is seeing its last days.

I have never heard of such a poor king who wants to violently grab government property. His kingdom should build houses, and his palace as well; with specificities that suit a king. A king should not be like a president. Presidents get the top job through the art of politics (they don't apply for the job like plumbers and accounts clerks do). A king is a king by deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), in a Kingdom that has always been there. I'm sorry I doubt this one as a self-styled king who wants to do a totally new thing altogether
