Zulu King Demands $700K for Sixth Wife’s Palace

Mary Papenfuss, Newser, September 7, 2012

Wives aren’t cheap, especially when you’ve got six of them. South Africa’s Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini is demanding the government cough up $700,000 for a palace for his sixth and youngest wife, Queen Mafu, who first stepped out with the king at the age of 14 eight years ago. He also wants $1.4 million to spruce up Queen MaMchiza’s palace, reports the BBC.

The demands come despite criticism that too much taxpayer money is being spent on the king, his wives, and some 25 children. The KwaZulu Natal government, one of nine provincial administrations, has already budgeted some $6.9 million for the Zulu royal family this year. The king’s new request will be considered later this year.

    The African king gets all the wives he wants. The African warlord gets all the girlfriends he wants. The black gang leaders get all the sex they want. What else is new?

  • Sounds like he might be a distant relative of Mayor Mack daddy.

    Queen MaMchiza’s? Does that come with fries?

    How do you spruce up a big straw hut with a dirt floor?  Buy new pigs?  Dust off the skulls?  Buy new, longer poles for your next impalement party?

      Easy.
      You hire some whites to build you palace.

  • I guess he can have as many wives as he wants as long as they are treated equally.

    • Oil Can Harry

      They’re all treated equally like prostitutes.

    That’s a lot of money for wives Queen Mafu and Queen MaMchiza.  I wonder how his third wife, Queen Latifah, feels about all this.

  •  The king needs new regal loincloths.

    I can’t help myself from LMAO…he’s certainly no different than Maxine Waters, Barbara Jordon, Rangel, Sharpton or Jesse Jerkson … or the “mayors” of Newark, Camden, Philly, Baltimore, Detroit or any other large metro area with a black prince leading them into insolvency or bankruptcy..is he?

    It’s in the DNA…mo, mo and mo…bling and bling. So much for empathy for the “brothers and sistas” well being, right?

    The pimps and the Armani suits plus those grand travel allowances are too hard to deny themselves…while the suckers still drown in poverty, pestilence, crime and ignorance and section 8 housing. Like this “king” with a bone in his nose….let them eat the bones.

      It is hard to believe that these white girls can go to so much trouble to frolic with the natives. 

      In a sense it shows just how bankrupt Hollywood MSM has driven our natural white culture. 

      That a beautiful white girl would want to spend her life’s treasure with troglodytes just defies comprehension…

      Thanks for the pictures !!

    And yet they constantly try and blame whites for Africa problems, yet African rulers consistently squander the wealth on their own luxuries while their people die.

    • Up to my neck in CA

      and they guilt the West into sending food, medical aid and to build them wells.
       
      Google “African Well Project” and see how many hits you get. It’s the 21st Century and they still can’t dig their own wells?

  • KD_Did

    Within 3 decades of being a white ruled, progressive, modern and beautiful country, THIS is who is KING?  If that doesn’t say it all there is nothing more to be said.   Despicable!

    •  The office of King of the Zulu hasn’t existed as long as that of King of the Angles, but it’s in a similar spirit.  Still, can you imagine an English king making such a demand?

      Well, this is entirely about the internal affairs of the Zulu.  If they want to accept it, good for them.

  • So its the same in KwaZulu Natal as in Great Britain, for once there’s no racial or cultural differencee here lol.
