KwaZulu

KwaZulu, South Africa: see KwaZulu-Natal; Zululand.

Former Bantustan, Natal, Republic of South Africa. It was designated by the South African government as the Bantustan for the Zulu population in South Africa, with area scattered among 11 exclaves (detached sections) throughout the province of Natal. The capital, initially at Nongoma, was moved in 1980 to Ulundi, the last historic capital of the Zulu empire (founded in 1816 by Shaka). In 1994, after the abolition of apartheid, KwaZulu was incorporated into the new province of KwaZulu-Natal.
