Zulu Nation is a freedom loving nation that upholds democracy and personal freedoms. 

Located in Southern Africa, we seek to unite the World wide Zulu Collective in the struggle for freedom and peace. We uphold law and order, family and service to the nation.

 

Founded in 1819, the Zulu Nation consisted of the amaZulu - people of heaven - who migrated to the southern reaches of the African Continent from the Great Lakes Region in Africa at the dawn of time (150,000 B.C.)

Under leadership of Shaka Zulu who united the various clans the nation prospered until the European settlers came.  The ensuing was between the Anglos, Boers, and Zulu, fractioned off the Zulu hold on South Africa, and threw down the hold of Shaka's descendants on the crown of the Zulu.

 

While in the years before the coming of the Apartheid hold on the Republic of South Africa, 12 descendants of former King Dinizulu, who was imprisoned in a dispute with Queen Victoria of Britain, fled the island in 1932 to the island of then known Madagascar.  Growing stronger through the year, this lost Zulu tribe of 12 multiplied to some 300,000 members and began to dominate the island.  Leading the fight for independence against the French colonial masters, Madagascar gained it independence in 1973.  The Malagasy who lived there became apart of the Zulu Collective as they lived in harmony with the Zulu brethren. The Island was renamed Zulu Nation.

 

These Zulu began to draw other descendants of South Africa to the island.  These came from several places- 1) the migration of Zulu, Xhosa, Swazi et. al from South Africa after the Afrikaner Enclave took over the Republic of South Africa in a coup, f2) from U.S. educated Blacks who wanted to live away from the United States, and 3) from various parts of the Caribbean, England, and the Island Nations seeking to start an new land under Black democratic rule.  Given the fine universities founded in Zulu Nation, it became a haven for the technologically gifted, and artistically inclined.  The addition of the island nations of the Seychelles, Mauritius, Diego Garcia, Maldives, and Comoros and bolstered this Zulu Collective and created a Zulu Archipelago. 

 

 A brief rule occurred by a small minority of persons who Instituted a government and called the main land Cosario.  This government tried to establish a war against Ahktendum, which caused the implosion of the economy. Thus allowed the Zulu freedom fighters to overthrow the government and at long last establish the Zulu national collective on the land.  These national feelings prompted the nation to undergo a massive military build up and become a leading maritime nation in the Indian Ocean. 

The Zulu Nation has become prominent in international affairs.  A Zulu representative has become a Councilor for the African Union Security Council, sit on the General Assembly for the African league, and in the United Nations.  Zulu leadership is also evident in the SADC and other international activities, including the 2004 Jiddah Games.

Namazulu ulwandle means people of Heaven and Sea.
