History of the Zulu Republic
The Zulu Republic was born after many Nigerian groups migrated into the vast lands which were controlled by the strong Zulu tribe in central Africa on the Upper parts of the Zaire river and its tributaries. These groups brought many new weapons and tactics into the ancient chiefdom of the Zulu and quickly conquered it. However, rather than run their country together, the several Nigerian immigrant tribes began to fight amongs themselves. It was at this same time that the Zulu began to steal the weapons which the Nigerians brought. The conclusion of the battle which insued among all these different groups established the Zulu Republic in what became the capital city.
The Government of The Zulu Republic
The Zulu Republic was established by a meeting of the several chiefs and they agreed to partition the lands into several chiefdoms and agree to protect each other and govern each other. Due to the tributaries of the Zaire river being vast and expansive throughout central Africa there was fertile land and the original eleven groups accepted this arrangement. These groups were the: Zulu, Bambara, Efik, Igbo, Gwari, Meta, Niger, Pahuin, Songhai, Tiv, and Yoruba. The Chief of each of these tribes established a Chiefdom and each of these chiefs was allowed a place on the Council of Chiefs which would govern their Republic, the Zulu would be the leader of Consul of the Council of Chiefs. This Council was made up of eleven men. The name Zulu in Zulu Republic comes from the fact that the country came out of the Zulu's ancient empire. The word republic came from the Nigerians connection to the Roman Empire which was known to be a famous Republic.
