Khulubuse Zuma’s royal wedding is off – for now.
The highly publicised nuptials of President Jacob Zuma’s large-living nephew and Swazi princess Fikisiwe Dlamini were set to take place on October 5 in Swaziland and October 12 at the groom’s Nxamalala village home.
But this week, the hopes of excited locals at Nxamalala of an October fest of their own were dashed when word spread that there is still no wedding planned.
By yesterday, news of the delayed nuptials had reached Zuma’s Nxamalala village. Zuma’s conspicuous complex is a stone’s throw from his uncle’s equally opulent Nkandla residence.
“This is a shock,” said a resident who asked not to be named. “We heard this morning. It’s hard to believe. Last month, the bride’s family came here to bring umbondo. The lobola has been agreed and everything.”
