The sudden death of Her Majesty, Queen Shiyiwe Mantfombi Dlamini Zulu, regent of the Zulu nation, has left South Africans in shock and many have taken to their TL to pay tribute.

On Thursday night, Buthelezi confirmed her passing.

“It is with the deepest shock and distress that the royal family announces the unexpected passing of Her Majesty Queen Shiyiwe Mantfombi Dlamini Zulu, regent of the Zulu nation. This has taken us by surprise and left us utterly bereft. It is true that the Lord alone knows the days that He has allotted to each one of us,” said Buthelezi.

The queen was appointed regent of the Zulu nation following the passing of her husband, King Zwelithini kaBhekuzulu last month.

Condolence messages have flooded social media as scores paid their respects to the royal family and Zulu nation.

President Ramaphosa also send condolences to the family of the deceased.
