Sibongile the first wife of King Zwelithini has lost a court case to amend her papers.


The queen wanted to have her late husband’s other marriages declared invalid.


The queen approached the court to demand that she inherit 50% of her late husband’s estate, as the only wife married in a civil marriage.


But her application to amend her court papers was set aside.


Wednesday’s proceedings resumed with a judgment by presiding Judge Isaac Madondo.


During Tuesday’s proceedings, Queen Sibongile wanted to know if the late king was precluded from his other marriages.


But Madondo dismissed the application, saying it was late and had no satisfactory reasons to warrant this.
