During the Kodesa negotiations there were agreements to sign “peace on the table” – Ingonyama Trust and Ingonyama trust legislation. After 1994 other legislation, like those for the Khoi khoi and San as well as the separate CPA legislation, where certain people have the opportunity to claim land and rule there own “chiefdoms” or whatever the case maybe. Inkatha was founded on the 1912 principle of nonviolence and refused to abandon the fundamental principle that maintained our struggle on the moral high ground. The Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP), pushed for power to be decentralised and advocated a federal state in which provinces could design tailor-made solutions, rather than being dictated to in a conveyor-belt system of governance from the top.
The IFP won several important victories at the negotiating table, not least the creation of provinces and the inclusion of a Bill of Rights in the Constitution. More than two million votes secured our participation in the government of national unity, where we continued to fight for checks and balances against unfettered power in the ANC.
Inkatha Freedom Party leader Inkosi Mangosuthu Buthelezi says the ANC owes him an apology for how it has treated him. Prince Buthelezi was speaking in an exclusive interview with SABC News in Ulundi, ahead of his 90th birthday on Monday.
2016 COMMEMORATION – ZULU CULTURE
Thousands of people gathered at Durban’s Moses Mabhida Stadium for the bi-centenary celebrations of the Zulu nation. Founded by King Shaka in 1816, it began as a small tribe of only 1500 people. The Nazareth Baptist Church held a prayer ahead of the cultural proceedings. President Jacob Zuma, Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini, Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi addressed the event. This years celebration also marks the 45 year reign of King Goodwill Zwelithini. It’s the first time that the King Shaka commemoration event was being held in Durban.

BACKGROUND … THE BRITISH EMPIRE
The battle of Rorke’s Drift was fought in 1879. A force of 4,000 Zulus attacked a camp defended by 140 British soldiers. Find out who won in this animated battle tactics video!
This video is the third and final part of my Anglo-Zulu war series. The battle of Ulundi was the final and pivotal battle of this war. In this battle, the Zulu defended their capital, Ulundi, from the British attackers. While their effort was heroic, it ended up being inadequate. The British marched through the Zulu army despite being horrendously outnumbered using a specialized box formation and lancers. After the Zulu had tired themselves out assaulting the box formation, the British employed their lancers to scatter or kill the remaining Zulu warriors.

Zululand was for years (since 1854: Shepstone Policey) like other ethnic groups separate in RESERVES or HOMELAND and today TRUSTLANDS
Inkatha leader Chief Mangosuthu Buthelezi is defying South Africa’s Government of National Unity. Prince buthelezi was fighting for the independence of Zululand. Yearly speeches about the kingdom and their monarchy. The Zulu hierarchy is part of ANC and the given salaries – there are stuctures in place.
