TimesLive said:Zulu king Goodwill Zwelithini‚ who is embroiled in a legal wrangle with racist guest house owner Andre Slade over the payment of rental arrears‚ has now been slapped with court papers in a bid to compel him to stop forcing occupiers of land under Ingonyama Trust to pay rent.
TimesLive said:The trust‚ which administers 2.8-million hectares of land on behalf of King Zwelithini‚ who is the sole trustee‚ was established in 1994 to be the custodian of the land previously administered by the former KwaZulu-Natal government.

However‚ Slade said the board had picked a “royal fight” and refused to pay the rental fee because he and his Slovak lover Katarina Krizaniova did not recognise Zwelithini’s authority as king.
“In the name of Yahweh‚ almight God‚ we refuse to recognise and respect the so-called Zulu king. King is God’s title‚ yet the first commandment of God says ‘thou shall not have no other gods before me’‚” he wrote on his website.
