The Swaziland government welcomed South Africa's offer to hand over parts of KaNgwane and KwaZulu to Swaziland, since, it claims the territory is historically and culturally part of the Swazi kingdom. The areas demarcated for the hand over were adjacent to Swaziland. The Kwazulu homeland government under the leadership of Chief Gatsha Buthelezi objected and successfully launched a court case against the move on the grounds that the Kwazulu homeland was not properly consulted as stated in the homeland act.
