But the King says he’s in good health
“I was scheduled to do my medical check ups anyway, which I do from time to time and I just said ok, I will go ahead and do my medical check ups in Swaziland. Not because I have been poisoned, I am not poisoned. I am well. I feel 100 percent [okay].”
“I’m happy, everything is well functioning, there is no poison whatsoever. So please people, mostly to the Zulu people, the Zulu Royal family also to remind everyone to please don’t listen to everything that people say.”
