Zulu ruler Goodwill Zwelithini has lashed out at the commonplace government, blaming it for neglecting to pay him what he merits. He was talking at a King Shaka remembrance in Stanger, north of Durban, on Sunday.
Despite the fact that the lord wailed over what he called an absence of money related acknowledgment, he gets a yearly compensation of more than R1-million and is apportioned a financial plan of about R60-million by the KwaZulu-Natal head’s office.
“I do not get a stipend . there is no money I get from the government. I do not get paid because the provincial government does not recognise me and the stipend I deserve as the king.”
The royal household received R58.8-million this year, of which R16.5-million went to salaries, payment of seven board members and the queens’ expenses.
