With shields in hand, amabutho made their voices heard outside the Pietermaritzburg high court on Wednesday.

As judge Isaac Madondo concluded a lengthy judgment, crowds of supporters of king in waiting Prince Misuzulu kaZwelithini gathered in the streets outside the court.

Madondo's ruling opens the door for Misuzulu's coronation to go ahead. “He is the undisputed successor to the throne,” Madondo said.

However, he ruled that an interdict application questioning the validity of King Goodwill Zwelithini's will can go ahead. This application had to be launched within 15 days or the interdict would lapse.

Outside court, some could be seen wearing their allegiance on their chests, as they marched with T-shirts showing Prince Misuzulu's face.
