DURBAN – AmaZulu King Goodwill Zwelithini has called on South Africans to launch a war against rapists.

Zwelithini on Thursday addressed the Umkhosi we Lembe, the annual commemoration of the day King Shaka was killed, at the eNyokeni royal palace in Nongoma, northern KwaZulu-Natal.

Shaka is believed to have been assassinated on this day in 1828.

Zwelithini said the country could not sustain itself with the high number of gender-based violence (GBV) related cases.

He used Thursday’s occasion to call for an end to GBV.

“All residents must join in the fight against gender-based violence. We can’t afford to see more women getting violated,” Zwelithini said.

At the same time, the king paid a glowing tribute to President Cyril Ramaphosa, saying his efforts in the fight against COVID-19 had garnered the country international praise.
