King Goodwill Zwelithini has called for an end to political violence in KwaZulu-Natal, the Zulu Royal Household said on Tuesday.

"We cannot afford an image of a province wherein political intolerance is the order of the day."

He said there was a fear that the province was in danger of slipping back into the violence that had wracked it in the past.

His household said Zwelithini "will do everything in his power to ensure that the recurrence of such destructive behaviour is nipped in the bud.

"His Majesty is hopeful that our security machinery will take all necessary steps to ensure that peace prevails, and that any unruly elements found to be violating the rights of others will face the might of the law."

Zwelithini called on the clergy to assist political leaders in keeping peace in the province.
