Bapedi King Thulare dies


It’s less than a year since Bapedi king, Thulare Victor Thulare III was officially recognised as the leader of Bapedi tribe- sadly the king has passed away.

Thulare was bestowed with a certificate recognising him as the rightful king of Bapedi back in May 2020.

According to sources close to Thulare, he passed away at about 08:00 on Wednesday January 6 after a short illness. Thulare was 40 years old during the time of his death.

In March last year President Cyril Ramaphosa signed a recognition certificate over to Thulare as the Bapedi kingdom’s leader. This after the Constitutional Court affirmed him as the legitimate king of the Bapedi after a protracted dispute over the throne.

In  May,Thulare was bestowed with a certificate of recognition by deputy minister of co-operative government and traditional affairs (Cogta) Obed Bapela in Pretoria.

Thulare was the son of the late King Rhyne Thulare who died in 2007, while Victor was still too young to be crowned King.

This is a developing story, more updates to follow after the  Royal House officially releases a media statement.
