Various political parties have expressed outrage over the prince’s assassination.

The Inkatha Freedom Party – whose founder and chairman emeritus is the prime minister of the Zulu nation and which was instrumental in the rise of King Misuzulu – said it did not want to speculate on the reason for the murder of the Zulu prince. He, however, called on Police Minister Bheki Cele to appoint a high-level detective team to investigate the murder.
IFP President Velenkosini Hlabisa said: “IFP wishes to extend its deepest condolences to the Zulu Royal Family on the tragic passing of Prince Mbongiseni. We feel what the Zulu Royal Family, and indeed His Majesty King Misuzulu, is going through. It is sad that over the past few weeks people, especially near Osuthu Palace, have been attacked and shot dead.

“We urge the Minister of Police to do whatever it takes to put an end to these kinds of killings. This could possibly cause instability in the royal family. The IFP is of the opinion that there should be calm and stability in the Zulu Royal Family.

“We’re not saying this murder is related to any disputes that might exist within the royal family, but how it happened raises a number of questions,” Hlabisa said.
The ruling African National Congress (ANC), according to its KZN provincial secretary, Bheki Mtolo, is “extremely concerned about what appears to be a systematic murder of key leaders who made indelible contributions to the rise of King Misuzulu kaZwelithini on the Zulu throne”. ”.

“The monarch is a symbol of unity. We must therefore disappoint those who want to divide us. Overall, we remain confident that the SAPS Provincial Commissioner, Lt. Gen. Nhlanhla Mkhwanazi, will assign experienced law enforcement officers, particularly in the area of ​​intelligence gathering.

“We hope that Lieutenant General Mkhwanazi will ensure that those who have inflicted irreparable harm on the nation are brought to justice,” Mtolo said.

In August, Zulu King Misuzulu kaZwelithini vowed to tackle the scourge of killings of amakhosi (chiefs) and izinduna targeted in KwaZulu-Natal
