BAYEDE! 200 Years of Tradition

The origin of the word BAYEDE!:

zulu warriorBAYEDE! means "Hail the King", which is a Royal Zulu salutation dating back to the time of the great warrior King Shaka Zulu and was called out to greet the King.

King Goodwill Zwelithini is the eighth reigning king of the Zulu nation under the Traditional Leadership clause of South Africa’s Constitution. He was born in July 1948 at Nongoma in KwaZulu Natal, the eldest son of King Cyprian and his second wife, Queen Thomo. He was installed at a traditional ceremony at Nongoma in 1971. It is estimated that there are more than 12 million Zulus, the largest South African ethnic group, most of whom live in the province of KwaZulu Natal.

Although the constitution makes the role of the king largely ceremonial, King Goodwill Zwelithini’s most important role may well lie in his symbolising of community and solidarity of the nation. As custodian of Zulu traditions and customs, King Zwelithini closely follows the example of his mother, Queen Thomo, who commenced a beadwork project for job creation.
