King MisuZulu plans to take Nomzamo Myeni as his third wife

AmaZulu King MisuZulu KaZwelithini has announced his plans to take another wife, Nomzamo Myeni.

The news emerged this week during a closed meeting of senior royal members held in the royal palace of KwaKhangelamankengane in Nongoma, northern KwaZulu-Natal.

“The king has found the beautiful rose in the royal garden of Myeni in Jozini,” AmaZulu traditional prime minister Thulasizwe Buthelezi told members of the royal house.

“He has instructed me to request all the royal family members to pay lobola [dowry] to the Myenis on the 5th of May.”

King’s entanglement with second wife

Sunday World is aware that Myeni had been a bank teller when the king courted her. She subsequently left the financial institution and worked with King MisuZulu.

The news of the king taking another wife comes in the midst of his entanglement with his second wife, Queen Nozizwe Mulela kaMakhubu of the Kingdom of Eswatini.

The pair are no longer singing from the same hymn book despite various interventions from the royal house and King MisuZulu’s uncle, King Mswati III, the absolute monarch of the landlocked country bordering South Africa.

On all public platforms, South Africa’s most pampered king is often seen with his foster wife, Queen Nontokozo kaMayisela.

His late father, King Zwelithini kaBhekuZulu, had six wives and 28 children.

I did not know he was from a royal family

Speaking during an interview with one of South Africa’s commercial radio stations in 2023, Her Majesty KaMayisela shared that she had no idea that MisuZulu was from a royal family when they first met.

“When we first met, I thought I was meeting a regular man. As time went by, I found out who he was, and it was too late for me to pull out. I was deeply in love with him,” she said.

In a wide-ranging interview with the station, which MisuZulu also attended, the king told the host that it had been less than a year since he was coronated, yet people had already expected much from him.

“My father was a king for over five decades,” said King MisuZulu.

“It hasn’t been more than a year since I took over, and I would like people to be patient with me before I can do much that they are expecting from me.”
