Lt. Melvill: Well done, Sir! Did you see that Noggs? Deceived him with the up and took him with the down. Norris-Newman: Well well, this one's a grandfather at least. If he'd been a Zulu in his prime I'd have given odds against your lancer, Mr.Melvill.

PostSubject: Zwelithini wants British royals to pay up   Wed Sep 21, 2016 7:55 pm

From The (Natal) Witness (24th June 2015):

Durban - King Goodwill Zwelithini wants the British royal family to pay the Zulu kingdom for destroying his great-grandfather’s palace in 1879, a report said on Wednesday.

Zwelithini said he didn’t harbour any animosity towards the “English emperor” but said it would be “nice if the English kingdom would one day compensate us”, reported The Mercury newspaper.

The Zulu royal was speaking at the sod-turning of the new Sandlwana Heritage Project in Dundee.

The project sees the unveiling of a multi-million rand cultural village, News24 reported on Monday.




“This has always been a dream of his, the king has always wanted something like this,” said Zwelithini’s spokesperson, Prince Thulani Zulu, adding that the village would benefit the Zulu nation and other South Africans in reminding them what happened during the Battle of Isandlwana.

The Battle of Isandlwana took place on January 22 1879. The British Army was defeated when about 24 000 Zulu warriors reportedly attacked a British camp of about 1 700 near Isandlwana Mountain. It is reported that 1 300 of the British forces were killed.

Zwelithini’s great-grandfather King Cetshwayo’s Ondini Palace was set on fire by the British army on July 4 1879.

Zwelithini said it should be understood “that I am an enemy with them [the British]”.

Gugu Ngcobo, CEO of KwaCulture, the non-profit organisation managing the heritage project, said the development was aimed at promoting Africans.

“The village is going to provide programmes that are going to address who we were during the pre-colonial times. It will have cultural camps for children, men, women and the youth."

In March, the king came under fire for comments that were seen as xenophobic.

The king had been a guest of Police Minister Nkosinathi Nhleko at a meeting on moral regeneration on March 15 when, according to Isolezwe, he is alleged to have said in Zulu: “We urge all foreigners to pack their bags and leave.”

Soon after, a wave of xenophobic attacks swept KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng.

But the Royal Household Trust later defended Zwelithini, claiming his meaning was lost in translation, The Witness reported.

This is the cultural village that is now stalled and awaiting heritage, environmental impact and financial clearance

King 'Goodwill' scratch Ha Ha, that's a laugh. Some 'goodwill' with him saying that he is now an enemy. Shocked

Anyway, saying that the Welsh like to credit themselves with the Glory during the AZW, maybe they should pay up, no, I didn't think so. Joker

In my opinion, the whole point of South Africa rejoining the Commonwealth was to get more handouts from the UK. This demand is but another example of tapping the source.

Maybe Sweden could put in a claim against King Goodwill Zwelithini for a new thatch roof on Witt's house.

Oh dear, how much is the White House in Washington going to cost us? And then there is the Imperial City in Peking. Best to turn a deaf un!

Think about all the native Aussies? That's a hell of a lot of naughty young men to repatriate!
