  1. I remember how the ANC supporters and the Inkatha Freedom Party members used to maim and kill each other in those years. It is good this man stopped politics. It greatly helped save lives


    • Why call him PRINCE??? Am surprised you didn’t include DR DR bra bra…
      We all know him, the no nonsense man. Just say Buthelezi is coming.


    • Please let him also visit the grave of his son ZWANGENDABA in Kasama. I was pleasantly surprised this first leader of the Ngoni people is burried in Kasama. HIS GRAVE is still unmarked but is now a national Heritage. Iwonder how many of these Mbuyas know about this.


    • This is a very poorly informed opinion, Chief, Dr. Buthelezi did not leave politics and is one of SADEC ‘d trained minds….ask Mandela….


  2. This king has his hands dripping blood of black South Africans he was paid to kill by the dozens by the boers ………the boers tried to stop the ANC by using this killer as a paid assassin…..


    • Another ignorant opinion…..please go and read up on the Chief please before spitting vernom that’s uncalled for.


  3. Please leave him alone. Let him come and enjoy the ceremony. Your chiefs can also invite people from outside Zambia whom they share a history with.


  4. @1.3 History. Maybe we should move Zwangedaba from Kasama to Chipata his true founded province than leave him out there away from his fellow ancestors.

    Gutsy guy taking on Shaka Zulu like he did.
