Sihle Sibisi, who claims to have had a romantic relationship with King MisuZulu, says there are people using her name to tarnish the AmaZulu King’s image.

The women and children’s activist — who is also the founder of Kwanele Foundation — said this following a City Press article about her relationship with the king.

In the article, the publication reports about Sibisi and the King’s romance; from how they met and fell in love to their relationship eventually ending.

Sibisi claimed that she and King MisuZulu fell in love and became intimate after a few dates a visit to the fertility clinic. However, the couple broke up and she allegedly was painted as an intruder in a statement released by the royal palace.

Thereafter, Sibisi said that she has been receiving threats from unknown numbers which resulted in her laying an intimidation charge at the Douglasdale police station, Johannesburg, last week.

In addition, a leaked conversation allegedly between Sibisi, her brother and the king has been circulating on social media. In the audio clip, a man who is believed to be King MisuZulu threatens to beat Sibisi up and kill her.

According to Zimoja, the anti-gender-based violence activist denied being a homewrecker.

“It is unfair to accuse me of being a homewrecker when I do understand polygamy. I loved that man and I still do but we are better off apart. This thing of spreading lies about me is not on. I am at peace with being single now,” she said

King MisuZulu is married to Queen Ntokozo Mayisela-Zulu.

Sibisi claims she was not the only lady dating the AmaZulu king.

“Andizi, I am not commenting on anything relating to those allegations. Yes we dated and yes we were in love but I was never desperate for marriage. It was just umjolo and it ended. It’s not like he was having an affair with me alone. There are other ladies that he was dating while I was part of his life,” she said.

She further claimed that her name was being used to tarnish King MisuZulu’s name.

“I hate this thing of being used in the royal house battles. The people who go around spreading fake news about me are the same people that did not want MisuZulu to ascend the throne. They are now using my name to tarnish the king’s image,” she said.
