It has been announced by Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi that there would be a private funeral held for deceased Zulu Prince Lethukuthula Zulu in order to maintain Covid-19 regulations.
Stated, “At dawn on Friday, the prince’s remains will be interred. This will be followed by a private funeral service at Khethomthandayo Royal Palace, the residence of Her Majesty Queen Sibongile MaDlamini,” Buthelezi said on Thursday.”
“He acknowledges the extent to which the Royal Family and the Zulu Nation are feeling the pain of this loss. However, His Majesty urges strict compliance with the lockdown regulations, and accordingly requests that mourners refrain from coming to the funeral on Friday.”
“In terms of the lockdown regulations, there are already too many mourners, just within the Royal Family itself. Thus, even within the immediate family, attendance will be restricted.”
“I therefore urge that we alleviate the burden of worry on His Majesty our King by honouring his instructions. These are unusual times. It is necessary that we take direction from our King, and abide by his wishes.”
