AmaZulu King’s office warns political parties against using ‘royalty related images’ for campaigning

AmaZulu King

The Office of the AmaZulu King, MisuZulu ka Zwelithini, has threatened to take legal action against all political parties using photos of the Zulu Kings, past and present, or any royalty related images in their election campaigns.

On Monday,  Inkatha Freedom Party ((IFP) retracted an infographic with the face of the current King MisuZulu ka Zwelithini. The party has apologised – saying the photo was erroneously used.

Spokesperson for the Zulu Royal House, Prince Thulani Zulu says the King has always been above politics.

“The office of the King wishes to state categorically clear that from time immemorial the Zulu King has never been used to advance political ideology. His office humbly appeals to all political parties to refrain from using photos of the Kings,or any other royalty related images, in the election campaigns. The king has always been above politics. This is a warning to all political parties, otherwise, this office might have to seek legal advice on this matter,” says Zulu.
