“It is sad that today one hundred and forty years after defending our land at the battle of Isandlwana and after more than a century of being at the forefront of the liberation movement to fight against the worst system apartheid which was defined as a crime against humanity by the United Nations, and after twenty five years of being part of the democratic dispensation in South Africa, we are vilified for being who we are. This vilification has resulted in what can be constructively be referred as Zulu phobia.”

The King seems also not to have abandoned the idea of secession.

“We are prepared to be part of the solution and part of South Africa. But, if there are those who are calling for us to be on our own, they must come clean and out in the open because we are just waiting for them.”

You will lose Richards Bay and Durban ports.
We'll be fine.

Ngqura was built with the intention of taking container congestion off of Durban as it is. Long-term plan for Ngqura is to handle more and more containers destined for Gauteng, the economic hub of the country.

And it isn't as if a Zulu state would cut us off from the port. Not if they wanted to profit from giving Gauteng and its economy access to the port.

YOU clearly have NO grasp of -- Economic History
Try starting with the birth of the railways and the discovery of Gold on the Witwatersrand -- IN THE ZAR
You could also take a lesson in Geography -- as well as a quick check of what is the BUSIEST road in South Africa

This is of course ALL completely moot seeing as the handling of ANY cargo at ANY South African port is so slow as to be useless.

When the Chinese call in their loan for the building of the -- highest suspension bridge in Africa -- they will of course take over MAPUTO harbour -- fix it up and build a six lane highway through to Gauteng -- which will THEN become the busiest road in Southern Africa !

Highest Suspension Bridge in Africa

State of the Art Tarred Road

Of course the CHINESE will have to take up the cost of his majesties Royal Household !

I'm one for Zulu secession, just as long as my taxes don't have to fund their state in any way.
Good, get the Zulus to secede first, they will use force but eventually open the pathway to do it. Then the Cape can secede and the great British mistake of South Africa can be rectified.

You must also be of the group of Africans with the common low IQ
ANY "Zulu" secession will lead to a very unnecessary shedding of blood , be quite unsuccessful , AND encourage foreign intervention.
In any case WHAT leads you to the conclusion that -- his Majesty speaks on behalf of ALL Zulu ?
The Zulu -- an artificially constructed group of people have NEVER been completely united -- nor spoken with ONE voice ! -- as numerous internal wars and strife have indicated.

BINGO

MORE low IQ nonsense
There was NO "great British mistake"
There WAS a -- NATIONAL CONVENTION
In which a SELF_GOVERNING Transvaal and Orange Free Sate plus Natal and the Cape sent delegates who speaking on behalf of their constituents AGREED to a UNION
The UNION of South Africa was a VOLUNTARY act of the four territories of Southern Africa
ALL that the British did was oversee the process.............

He speaks on behalf of all who regard themselves Zulu, or submit to his rule. The strife in KZN is largely political/taxi industry related/family feuds afaik
