5:35 am
in a read television appearance on this episode of talk to al-jazeera we revisit that interview with the make. good wills willie teenie. thank you majesty for such an opportunity thank you very much. my problem. is just to be given such an opportunity and to have an audience with the. t.v. . programs your majesty let me take you back to history back in 1968. and after you inherited the throne. you took critic to the island of santa lane that that remote atlantica island. would you mind revealing the reasons why i don't remember myself
5:36 am
finding myself in. 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 south africa used to be the 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.
5:37 am
that was in s. and helena when my late father passed away and they didn't 68. i was still in the college by then and then their threads actually came you know just after a 10 defense best day and when there was about to have a clean zing time as his way made 5 i have passed away king supreme dick losing it by the glancing and it is by the royal family they clean things stand in their a family and the nation at large. so the information came across and then one of my eldest sister has 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
5:38 am
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. the way these 2 rican saw all the 2 notions the notion of the long globalized. culture in most cases the west and the on with the traditional rich traditional cultures that are being threatened to be extinct by this attack cultures of this isn't 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 that. he was arrested for crossing.
5:39 am
after they have actually attacked louis. in aden 79 after the battle of is under 98 and 79 h. and not at the 22nd and then when the british came back on the 4th of july bending down of lunacy as it was the campus capital city of this were a nation where kings trial was settled and then after that there's a relation have scott that most got out from the pass but they were infiltrated by a certain policies and by a set and people that instigated them do away with the king. but it wasn't easy from my people to object
5:40 am
kingfisher iow as their king did swear the cultures of these are nations that you know to move sideways so now when it comes to mecca and for some of my friends and cops they have never had to know push unity to look back on the cultural values of the of of those or a nation they're not even true as an i.p.o. in the i. and then even to may on close to my late father's time king supreme peers among us was a can support my statement in madden 54 those are the same they started to took at it things took a head to make things work on cultural values with the attire yeah
5:41 am
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 the royal family most of you have revived the many of the traditions of this little tradition of that nation yet. many of these traditions others have been subject to criticism and this 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 little ernie and keeping up with the male circumcision i feel shame and sorry for those
5:42 am
people that have caused 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 i have never if i act some of the events how and 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
5:43 am
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 of his yes even doctors on what the minister of the of the said the same thing. so when it comes 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
5:44 am
. 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 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 so i said 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
5:45 am
called. 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. i 4 dead you know mind of listening in the ear of listening to court telling me something and then i ask 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 make me to lead today i saw you i do want to tell me and then when i go on praying praying praying praying praying praying
5:46 am
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 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 strength i thought i should bring the young ones because i know the devil spirit
5:47 am
is docketing the youth in any country in the world as you could see their way. the trucks. being scattered everywhere they're not targeted to myself and you were old enough that you can just go over to the and just go for that but i was sure and they're living under threat because of the 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 an emphasis 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
5:48 am
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 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 he's sort of gone from dubuque it's not it actually causes that to prod back into practice in our schools just to tell that really history interim i have to daughter might.
5:49 am
as 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 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 establishing an independence kingdom of this issue that will get together and
5:50 am
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 those zulus us got out every way in any corner of the world but they know where they come from and they know with their king so. when you talk in terms of king go my people still believe that they still call it their own kingdom doesn't matter that we were 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 maybe you will still believe that they are kingdom still there because when these some
5:51 am
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 and i'm quoting you there is no palace without people how in light of this very telling phrase how would you define 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 am the king of the people off was a minister. there where could that quarter of a sign me now is a way that is more than of. their fund of there's
5:52 am
a donation king shaka in 1816. to 2060 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 off the top why because i embrace all of them and raise even that different allegiance there's a reason people treasons islamic movements limbs and islamic 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 their king and a different race groups are looking at me as their king and then to prove that
5:53 am
ensuring the time off opening of pilar men out of the province that before it starts to work. i'm the only monarch in south africa that you know opens piler men's in this province and in south africa the president opens this is our parliament i bow painting the provincial parliament so all political parties they know their except for me as i am one. even and comes to violence i take action inviting all political different political parties took at. to bring our heads together
5:54 am
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 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
5:55 am
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 ends i'm talking about the n.c. which is not nice and then now decides that i think they are busy sorting that out but deval 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 of all those burning down on transport and all that. i'm not against people claiming what they claim. and talk what they should
