King Dinizulu

Saturday, 18 October 1913

Dinuzulu ka-Cetshwayo, King of the Zulu nation, released from prison by Prime Minister Gen. Louis Botha, who also saw to it that he received a farm to live on, died on his farm Uitkyk in Middelburg district, Transvaal. At his own request he was buried with his ancestors on the Mpembeni River in Zululand. Dinuzulu's son,Solomon Nkayishana succeeded to the throne and although the White authorities viewed this as an honorific title, nonetheless, the House of Shaka remained deeply revered as paramount in Natal and Zululand.
