Goodwill Zwelithini kaBhekuzulu, the King of the Zulu Nation, has prompted the government to employ the services of spies once again to look into the affairs of illegal foreigners who are taking advantage of SA’s porous border.
It will be recalled that the monarch was blamed for inciting xenophobic tendencies in SA over a year ago. King Zwelithini has always been a chauvinist who is always so patriotic and protective of the KwaZulu-Natal Province.

The Province of the KwaZulu-Natal monarchy system of government is specially provided for by the South African Constitution. Thus it means a lot when the Zulu king rings an alarm of concern over the influx of illegal foreigners.
The monarch suggests that there is need for a recruitment of spies who would fish out information about illegal immigrants.
He says that these spies could also help by serving as a form of security outfit in the province. He made this suggestions known while delivering a keynote address during a meeting with Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba and traditional leaders at Enyokeni Palace in Nongoma on Friday.
“Resuscitate the spies. There was nothing wrong with spies, but they must work together with the police. There is something wrong with our security,”
“The truth is that our borders are not properly secured.”
While he implied that he was not trying to instigate a divide between the government and traditional leaders, he said he just wants “things to be right”. He urged the government to come up with laws that will tighten SA’s borders.
The monarch stressed the importance that foreigners should have the legal permit to be in South Africa for security reasons.
King Goodwill Zwelithini did not also fail to register his disappointment that South Africa which was the largest economy a while back is now the third after Nigeria and Egypt according to the IMF.
He also noted that corruption will only do more harm than good in SA’s economy.
