I know some of you think that Zululand is just some B movie backlot, where black actors in the 1950's starred as tall warriors fighting the British. It can't really still exist. I mean, it's South Africa, didn't all that get eliminated when Mandela was released?
If you're like me, and didn't follow very closely, you'll have missed yesterday's whole country (Swaziland), and probably also not understood that South Africa has quite a few complexities. One of which is that the Zulu people still occupy a significant area in the north eastern part of the country.
