New self-imposed Ndebele King, Stanley Raphael Khumalo, who goes by Mzilikazi II, has been dismissed by his kinsmen, the Khumalo Clan, who allege that they are yet to agree on a new king. This come after Khumalo, has threatened to pull down the national flag in favour of his Mthwakazi flag on the 12th of September.
One of the Khumalo clan members, Peter Zwide KaLanga Khumalo said:

I am God’s choice by His grace and not merit or any qualification Read More
