KAZEKA Kuse's comparison of the queen of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth (not only England) to King Goodwill Zwelithini is not comparing eggs with eggs ("Heritage Month shows us as Anglicised Africans", September 25). Queen Elizabeth generates millions of pounds for the UK through tourism, promotional tours of other countries for business and tourism, and tireless work for all who she represents.
I stand to be corrected, but King Goodwill is the king of the Zulus (a traditional king) and not the whole of South Africa. There is very little in the press on how much work the king does in promoting the country, and bringing in tourism and business through hard work.
Perhaps he is the victim of bad public relations, but if the king shows how much he is worth to the country and he is happy to open all his palaces to tourism as the queen does, I don't think he will be begrudged the extra R18-million thrown at him by the government.
Until then I am afraid he will be open for criticism that has arisen up to now.
