11:35 am
the city zimbabwe a swahili formerly known as swaziland. botswana and mozambique they had all recognized one man as they king goodwills wally teaming who donated on march 12th. king's with a teeny range under the traditional leadership clothes of south africa's republican constitution. and although his role was largely ceremonial he represented the connection of the zulu people with a post and a history since he came to the throne in 1991 during the apartheid era at the age of 23. 26 the in the late king discussed the past present and future of the zulu nation in a raid television appearance on this episode of talk to al-jazeera we revisit that interview with the lake zulu king goodwills willy t. me. thank your majesty for such. an opportunity thank you very much. my brother. just to be given such an
11:36 am
opportunity and to have an audience with the. and t.v. programs your majesty let me take you back to history back in 1968. and after you inherited through. you to create huge to the island of scent the lane that that remote atlantica island. would you mind revealing the reasons why i don't remember myself finding myself in. sand. it's only make great grandfather king dinos who know. who was in exile for 10 years and chilling the time when you know of
11:37 am
south africa used to be a governing body of this country. and then he was released. they didn't 98 and then when he was released he had to be looked at as somebody who was actually a fight against the government of the time so i always wonder how such information came across that it was myself that was in the center line when my late father passed away and they didn't 68. i was still in the college by then and. it's actually came you know just after may tend to france best day. when
11:38 am
there was about to to have a cleaning time as his way made father have passed away king supreme declines and by the glancing electors who by their own family they clinching stand in their own family and the nation at large. so the information came across and then one of my elder sisters taken option and my brother and lo to secure me and then i had to leave the kingdom out to other province so where did you go your majesty i was just in south africa but in other provence instance while someway since the notion of globalization has been advancing for the last 2 decades how do you see. ways to rican saw
11:39 am
all the 2 notions the notion of the long globalized. culture in most cases the west and want with the traditional rich traditional cultures that are being threatened to be extinct by this attack cultures of this in a nation has been living under threatened for yes because during the time can play joyeux after the endless a war you know the history of that day he was arrested for crossing. after they have actually attacked a loony in aden 79 after the battle of is under the money 8 in 79 h. and not a 22nd and then when the british came back on the 4th of july bending down of a loony. as it was the campus to capital city of this were
11:40 am
a nation where kings trial was settled and then after that there's a relation have scott know scott that from other parts but they were infiltrated by certain policies and by set and people that instigated them do away with the king. but it wasn't easy from my people to object kingfisher io as the acting that's where the cultures of these are nations that you know to move sideways so now when it comes to america and for some of my clan unconscious they have never had an opportunity to look back on
11:41 am
the cultural values of the of of the zadran nation they're not even true as an ip when i. and then even to make unconscious during my late father's time king supreme peers among us was a can support my statement imagine 54 there's another tie this that it took at it things took a head to make things work on cultural values with the attire yeah when the 1st time for opening of this day shoe in the top of king shaka. so that's where you could have seen this sort of people starting to come up with their own traditions and i tire and
11:42 am
the royal family most of you have revived the many of the traditions the old traditions of that nation yet. many of these traditions others have been subject to criticism and the base case in are you controversial if it was such a controversy and criticism for reviving. such traditions i feel shame in sort of especially the book the reader down this sort of learning and keeping up with the male circumcision i feel shame and sorry for those people that have got such a feeling i'm sort of that it's it's what some of our black people you know that have called sage beings but as far as that is concerned. i don't think i would be having so many people in this country if
11:43 am
i've never revived some of the events how or why because of a savior in aids pandemic because if you have head please bonus or tweet to lizzie last evening of. dino on my birthday. he just mention that he's measures t. have spoken up about a savior in aids long before 2 years before it was discovered and our king of prophesies about this disease. so no we appreciate what our king has been doing all these years
11:44 am
even dr joe moore the minister of do it is said the same thing. so in the colors of this because this isn't i'm not what it about it because i know when you're doing something court based on people that will just keep on criticizing it buttons explain to us how reviving the tradition such as the recent dance ceremony which is raising awareness raising against aids culture is a unifying factor in the leadership. it's just like every it's just like it legion . if you think of a certain religion your friends unity even on cultural values you'll find a sign a few unity in peace within so now i look at it
11:45 am
in a very close eye. when god tells me about this disease coming and i had to question myself what am i going to do when satiate disease is going to come because the disease means it's going to approach by the devil and i wouldn't do this without my belief how did you pull for size that disease before it came into existence or it was this call. well if you're close to god do they believe that god has brought us the son jesus christ and then. i need to do you know when they pray.
11:46 am
i 4 dead you know mind of listening in the ear of listening to court telling me something and then i ask the court why god are you telling me this what my state do to save your people and to save save my people that you have just meet me to lead. so you know i do want to tell me and then when i go on praying praying praying praying praying praying waiting for the answer and i was lucky your culture is the one that can actually bring all the we men took it and then
11:47 am
you cough it out their message that i've just given to you to keep their virginity until now which actually vision it is not important vision it is for caring and then the advice to the people that you could see that they're being weakened by a man. who cannot protect themselves so to kill them that's strange i thought i should bring the young ones because i know the devil spirit is docketing the youth in any country in the world as you could see their way. the trucks are being scattered at every way they're not targeted to myself and you were old
11:48 am
enough that you can just go over to the duke and just go for that but i shield and they're living under threat who are these some people who i just tack it. to destroy the future nations of tomorrow from what i see in that correct killer in the south african schools that is the minimum and emphasis is on history and namely there's a history why do you think. this thing about the lack of emphasis on history in general and the zulu history in particular and do you think something that should be done and respect. i don't think we need to what it about. about. you know there's a new people on li when it comes to this. the problem is
11:49 am
sitting in the previous history which our government at the moment. is not bringing the history into practice within our own just because it's true shifts the history that was still sitting on top of the state of the unfriendly pick it's not it actually causes that to prod back into practice in our schools just to tell them really history interim i have to have to remind i says it's just shien's to give a period of history as it used to be in the past so no it is not something that is facing this alone nation only it faces all race groups in this country who will one day will find themselves being
11:50 am
in a very difficult position not to to know where they come from. what abscess is that today i know my history when i stand before my people. i had to make sure that he might be. talking about the history of zulu there once. there was once talk about the establishing independence kingdom of this issue that will get together and embrace the $11000000.00 population of this is who in this country is this still a viable. possibility in the future. i don't think it is so because when you talk in terms of loose zulus us got out every way in any corner of the world but they know where they come from and they know with their
11:51 am
king so know when you talk in terms of can go my people still believe that they still call it their own kingdom doesn't matter they're living in that reply because south africa they know who is their king and as a major blair of unity and a custody in of all cultures and values of this look people my people still believe that they are kingdom still there because when these some problems in the country i always intervene and my people still listens to me in your speech during your purse day ceremony you said a very telling sentence when you said it and i'm quoting you there is no
11:52 am
palace without people how in light of this very telling phrase how would you feel defines your kingdom is it democratic or an absolute monarchy or something in between. well as i am living in that it properly. the province where am i and the king of the people off was an utter. the where could that corner of us sign me now is a way that is more than of. their fund of this of the nation king shaka in 1816. to 2016 now as i am living in a democratic country the people of gaza renate that looking at me as taking off or the people are of course at
11:53 am
a time why because i embrace all of the. malays even the different allegiance there's a reason people treat since islamic moon was limbs he's learned communities and then a different. african type of religion it's that we have in this process all those people are looking at me as the aqim and a different race groups are looking at me as their king and then to prove that ensuring the time off opening of pilar men out of the province that before it starts to wake. i'm the only monarch in south africa bed you know opens polar men's
11:54 am
in this province and in south africa the president opens this is our parliament i bow painting the provincial department so all political parties they know their except for me as them or not. even and comes to violence i take action inviting all political different political parties took at. to bring our heads together and then i want talking about violence you raise this issue of lack of security in this country and your speech during your purse they certainly. how how do you see this problem this serious problem and what do you think the
11:55 am
reasons why for such lack of security is it because of lack of human resources material resources or is it because of lack of political will to this point of time you know we're just going for local election look look at election. elections. and now the not so many political parties that are fighting against each other you know in the past they used to fight against each other but it is friend of time it's only one political party that is the governing body political party government that it's party it's that one that is fight in fighting with the are you talking about the enzyme to them or the n.c. which is not nice and then now decides that i
11:56 am
think they are busy sorting that out but the vote is that i'm talking about is their vote is that is so much eruptive finding that there is some properties that type being attacked like in other parts of south africa where that bending down of schools burning down of a community all bending down on transport and all that. i'm not against people claiming what the sleep. and talk quite they should talk about but they need to bring its took at last june and during the holy months of the boss in the months. for more than you visit the. president a visit to the main mosque in the city of durban and in your visit
