The ruling party since Mugabe’s reign has managed to keep the Ndebele under tight control and tried by all means to counter any threats. President ED Mnangagwa reiterated that Zimbabwe will not be divided for any reason. Ndebele ‘King’ Bulelani Lobengula KaMzilikazi has hit back at the President over his statements that he will never allow the revival of the Ndebele Kingdom.
Bulelani’s spokesperson Bornman Khumalo told media that Mnangagwa has no power to stop the revival of the Kingdom because Bulelani was appointed King and his role is to lead the promotion of the Ndebele culture.

Addressing a Zanu PF Midlands Provincial Coordinating Committee meeting in Gweru over the weekend, Mnangagwa said, “Zimbabwe is a republic, there are people who wanted to revive the Ndebele Kingdom in Matabeleland, and we said no, we cannot have a kingdom in a republic.
“Zimbabwe is a republic, there can only be chiefs not kings, senior and junior, different levels but there are chiefs.
“I got a letter on Wednesday from the grandson of King Lobengula saying thank you President for recognizing Matshobana Khumalo, my great, great uncle. That’s what is done.
“He did not write a letter saying he wants to be king. No, he wrote a letter appreciating how we have recognized a general of my grandfather Lobengula or Mzilikazi, that’s what is done.”
