Zulu queen reburied after search for remains
DURBAN | President Jacob Zuma held a memorial service Sunday for the queen mother of South Africa’s Zulu people. She was reburied after a more than two-year search for her remains.
Mr. Zuma said the reburial of Queen Thomozile Jezangani KaNdwandwe Zulu, the mother of King Goodwill Zwelithini, restored her place in history. He spoke at the unveiling of the queen’s new tombstone in the eastern city of Durban.
The final resting place of the queen, who died in the 1950s in her early 30s, had been unknown.
The current king, who was just 11 years old when she died, made a life-long mission of finding her grave and reburying her according to Zulu tradition.
