Zulu monarch prime minister, Inkosi Mangosuthu Buthelezi, has revealed that king Goodwill Zwelithini KaBhekuzulu is still  recuperating in hospital. 

Buthelezi says while the king’s health is still not great, the situation is improving.

“I am happy that the queen of Linduzulu, umaNdlovu, and myself were briefed by the head of the medical team that’s treating the king. We have been told that their efforts to treat the king are progressing well and they are also happy with the progress made so far,”  concludes Buthelezi.

The 73-year-old Zulu king was unable to open the KwaZulu-Natal provincial legislature as is customary at the beginning of the year due to ill health.

He was admitted to ICU last month due to high glucose levels. – Report by Maputaland Radio News reporter, Nokubonga Xaba.
