Prince Mbongiseni was not only part of the traditional leadership in the province, but he was also involved in politics.
He previously served as an IFP member in the National Council of Provinces (NCOP) and as chief whip in the Zululand municipality at the time of his death.
“As the traditional Prime Minister to the Zulu Monarch and Nation, and as a relative of Prince MMM Zulu, I am deeply pained by this loss. I have not only known Prince Zulu all his life, but have served with him in Parliament where he represented the Inkatha Freedom Party as a Member of the National Council of Provinces,” said Buthelezi.
The circumstances around his killing are still under investigation.
