KwaZulu-Natal Premier Willies Mchunu had the following to say:

“His Majesty continues to give our province the uniqueness and competitive edge. Our King is not only the direct heir and descendant of all the kings lying in the valley of Emakhosini, but is also the symbol of peace and unity of our people. We thank His Majesty for his guidance and for ensuring our participation in King Cetshwayo Celebrations,” said Mchunu.

“As the province we are embarking on a campaign to market ourselves to the UK. Every year the province welcomed visitors from the UK and all over the world to the old Kingdom of the Zulu people. We want to increase the number of tourists who will attend the commemoration of the Battle of Isandlwana next year (2019), especially those from the United Kingdom.”
