The New Zulu Kingdom is a Kingdom in Southern Africa that incorporates the former South African province of KwaZulu-Natal, Swaziland, and Mozambique.



Although the Zulu tribes were majorly unaffected by Y2K, mainly because of the lack of nuked cities in their area and electronics, they took upon themselves the advantages of free land. Claiming the KwaZulu-Natal province as their own, the Zulu incorporated the failed state of Swaziland into their Provisional Zulu Kingdom on March 3, 2000. The new proclaimed King, Dumisani Sakhile, declared Mozambique to be part of their land. The dying Mozambique government rejected this claim. An invasion was launched, and Mozambican militiamen and military soldiers managed to fight off the Zulu until April 25, 2003, when the Zulu captured Maputo, claiming it as the capital of the New Zulu Kingdom.


Although some of it has died down today, rioting against Zulu control in the Mozambican region still goes on. Mozambican residents are not happy with the harsh control of King Dumisani. His approval rating as of January 2012 in the Mozambique Region is 7%, a 19% drop since the enacting of the Mozambique Control Act, which limited freedom of movement for citizens living in Mozambique Region.

Present-Day Political Tensions

In 2009, A Zulu man named Xolani Mondli petitioned twenty-thousand Zulu citizens to add a constitution to the New Zulu Kingdom, which would make the Absolute Monarchy a Constitutional Monarchy. King Dumisani rejected this petition, even going so far as to publicly denounce Xolani and everyone who signed the petition. Xolani created the Democratic Tribal Forces, a militia disguised as a political organization. As of 2011, The DTF has created fifteen petitions, all being rejected by the King, and have committed forty-two terrorist acts against the monarchy. With the latest petition to add a parliament being rejected, a growing nationalist hivemind against the DTF is becoming militant, and international governments are suspecting civil war will arrive at the country very soon.
