Wikipedia has a page called:

Shaka is the Leader of the Zulus in Civilization 1. He was not present in the SNES version of the game, being replaced by Tokugawa Ieyasu of the Japanese.

Total Threat Level: 4

Shaka's aggression is untempered in the event that his nation is less capable than your own. Even with his back against the wall, Shaka seems to prefer war to peace. Tactically, the Zulus don't usually develop their land overly, and are only moderately expansionist, making them not as great a threat as listed officially.
