BBC News published this video item, entitled “New Zulu king crowned in South Africa despite family feud – BBC News” – below is their description.
After a year-long family feud, Misuzulu ka Zwelithini is finally to be crowned Zulu king in a traditional ceremony in South Africa on Saturday.
The 48-year-old is the son of the previous king, but some royals argue he was not the rightful heir and that the late king’s will was in fact forged.
Thousands of people are expected at Saturday’s traditional coronation at KwaKhangelamankengane Palace, where the king-to-be will enter the sacred cattle kraal to invoke his ancestors before being announced to both the living and the dead as the new Zulu monarch.
He is expected to wear the hide of the lion that he hunted for the royal event, a key feat in proving he is indeed the chosen one. More than 10 cows have been slaughtered in preparation for the festivities.BBC News YouTube Channel
