The Zulu King’s eldest son has reportedly been poisoned to death after inviting four women back to his flat in South Africa.
Lethukuthula Zulu, 50, son of King Goodwill Zwelithini kaBhekuzulu, the reigning King of the Zulu nation, was found dead at his home in the Graceland One complex in the municipality of Randburg in the northern South African province of Gauteng on 6th November.
The police said that the victim’s bedroom had been “ransacked” and that two used condoms were left on the floor. Smashed bottles also littered the living room.
The victim’s flatmate said that they brought four women home with them on the night in question, and that he believes they were involved in the Zulu prince’s death.
The pair met the women at a popular nightclub, and the victim’s flatmate warned him that he had a bad feeling about the group.
He also claimed that he started to feel “drowsy” when arriving at the flat and that he “somehow passed out”.
The next thing he remembers is waking up to find the home ransacked and his flatmate unresponsive on the floor.
Witnesses reported hearing the sounds of screaming and broken glass during the early hours of the morning.
Around ZAR 80,000 (GBP 3,915) was allegedly stolen from the flat along with laptops and smartphones.
The Zulu prince was buried on 12th November in Nongoma and he left behind three children.
His death is still under investigation and the authorities are waiting for the results of a toxicity test.
