Zihogo Mgiliji Nhleko is dead, Commander of AmaZulu warriors – Cause of death

It is with sadness that we received the news of the passing of the Commander of AmaZulu warriors, ubaba uZihogo Mgiliji Nhleko, Ulale kahle Qhawe lesizwe, Nduna yamabutho.

The former leader of the Zulu Army, Zihogo Mgilija Nhleko, who was fired earlier this month, will have to wait another week before he knows whether his olive branch to King Misulu and Zulu monarch is accepted. On Wednesday, accompanied by senior members of the Nhleko clan of Nongoma and Nkosis next to his mother, Nhleko met with the Osutu Tradition Committee to seek reconciliation and apologize for his wayward behavior. However, the matter did not end, because the delegation was asked to come back next week to raise the matter again. Nhleko’s dilemma began in the final days of the reign of the late King Goodwill Zwelithini (the father of King Misuru).

In a statement on July 8 announcing the dismissal of Nhleko as the famous head, the chairman of the Osutu Royal Commission, Dr. Dumisani Khumalo, claimed that at some point during the celebration of the first fruit ceremony held in Enyokeni each year, Nhleko’s royal residence in Nongoma , To some extent rudely communicated with the late king, and later instructed to discuss the matter.

Khumalo later said that Nhleko was involved in some illegal activities. In one instance, he participated in a hunting ceremony in mid-June 2021. King Misuzulu was supposed to participate, but he was unable to participate in the hunt due to physical discomfort. Nhleko was later filmed in a video saying that he did not know the current king. “He further stated that he does not care whether he is deposed as the leader of Amaputo. After all, he said that even the traditional clothes and costumes he used were not bought by the royal family, but he bought it with his own money. ,” Kumalo said in the statement.

The last straw that crushed the camel was on July 4, when Enleko led a group to Encandela to show his support for former President Jacob Zuma before he surrendered and began serving his sentence. When Nhleko was asked about the trip, he allegedly told the royal family to step back because they were there in their personal capacity, but the monarch said that the traditional equipment he wore was only worn when the king was present. Yesterday’s attempt to get comments from Khumalo failed because his phone rang, no one answered, and then shut down. But royal sources confirmed that the matter was postponed to next week for further discussion.
