The President of AmaZulu Football Club, Sandile Zungu is deeply saddened to learn about the untimely passing away of His Majesty King Goodwill Zwelithini kaBhekuzulu (72), King of the Zulu nation.
On this sad occasion, Zungu would like to express his deepest and most heartfelt condolences – as well as on behalf of the entire family of AmaZulu FC – to all members of the Zulu Royal Family, the Zulu nation, the government and the people of South Africa.
Most recently, His Majesty gave blessings to the acquisition of AmaZulu FC by the Zungu family, which blessings were deeply appreciated. Amongst others, we attribute the change of fortunes in AmaZulu and the current run of form to His Majesty’s blessings.
King Zwelithini made history as the longest-serving monarch of the Zulu Kingdom with a reign spanning over five decades. During his reign, the King revived several Zulu cultural practices mainly aimed at promoting moral regeneration and addressing social issues such as gender-based violence and the spread of HIV and Aids.
His Majesty was a remarkable King, who played an important role in the promotion of peace, reconciliation and stability in the province of KwaZulu-Natal. King Zwelithini’s wise leadership and graciousness will be remembered forever. He will be sorely missed.Share
