Thousands of King Goodwill Zwelithini's subjects gathered in Ulundi for the Zulu nation's imbizo on Wednesday.

The Imbizo has been called to discuss government's land-expropriation plans.

EWN reporter Ziyanda Ngcobo says the issue of land has been an emotive issue for everyone, particularly in KwaZulu-Natal.

This because of the possibility of the Ingonyama Trust Act of 1994 being repealed. So far the speakers that have taken to the stage have shown solidarity with the Zulu king.

Goodwill Zwelithini has basically said that the Zulu nation is willing and ready to fight for that land.

She adds that one of the speakers was IFP leader Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi who said they negotiated with the apartheid government for the land to be transferred into the ownership of the Zulu King.

Ngcobo says Buthelezi said it’s shameful that a black government is behaving the same way the apartheid regime did when dealing with issues of land.
