    SOME Chiefs of the AbaThembu are furious

    with President Jacob Zuma, since they be-

    lieve the President is overstepping his

    boundaries.

    The AbaThembu chiefs issued a state-

    ment following the revelation lastweek, that

    the AbaThembu King, Buyelekhaya

    Dalindyebo, would be dethroned.

    According to the chiefs, AbaThembu is-

    sues needed to be addressed by the

    AbaThembu and not by the president.

    They described Zumas reaction towards

    the issue of the AbaThembu kingship, as

    overstepping which could divide the

    AbaThembu nation.

    The King had received a letter from Presi-

    dent Zuma, giving Dalindyebo 30 days to ex-

    plain why he should be allowed to keep his

    throne.

    This letter followed the action of otherDlo-

    moswhohad lodged a grievance, demanding

    the dethroning of Dalindyebo.

    They thought the kings behaviour to be

    unbearable and further believed that the

    king was allegedly involved in crime.

    Dalindyebowas convicted on 10 charges of

    culpable homicide, arson and kidnapping in

    2009. He appealed against the convictions.

    But a pro-Dalindyebo grouping disputed

    this and said not all the Dlomos were com-

    plaining about the King and that the deci-

    sion was never discussed or taken to Bum-

    bane Great place, where the Dlomos and the

    Thembus decided over their matters.

    The chiefs said Zuma was not a court that

    can give the king an ultimatum demanding

    a response within 30 days. Only a court can

    do that, not the president.

    They said the president should institute a

    commission of enquiry if he thought there

    was something wrong with the kingship of

    theAbaThembu. The kings right handman,

    Nkosi Jonas Ndzambule who was also

    present when the king handed a petition to

    Zuma in his office said theywere surprised

    Zuma is overstepping his boundaries AbaThembuChiefs

    to have received a letter from the president

    demanding an answer within 30 days.

    According to him, Zuma had never re-

    sponded to their petition when they were

    asking the president to steer clear of Them-

    bu nation matters.

    He said the AbaThembu nation was not

    having problems in solving their matters.

    So, presently the president must stay away

    from the Thembus and if they fail to solve

    their own problems, then only would they

    call on the president. Ndzambule said the

    Thembu nation is expected tomeet this com-

    ing weekend.

    Attempts to reach the office of the presi-

    dent for comment were fruitless.

    THATHAS ill repute as the

    crime capital of the province,

    brought the mayor of King

    Sabata Dalindyebo (KSD) Mu-

    nicipality, Nonkoliso

    Ngqongwa, Pastors and residents to their

    knees last week at the Munitata Freedom

    Square.

    TheKSDMunicipality, in conjunctionwith

    Pastors of different churches, took hands in

    an Interdenominational Prayer Walk, pray-

    ing for what they regarded as Rededication

    of Mthatha City to God.

    Political parties, churches and residents

    put their individual ideologies aside to unite

    in prayer.

    Two prayer groups covered different parts

    of town.

    Posters displaying prayers and slogans

    like, MayGodbemerciful andblessMthatha

    . . . Mthatha for Jesus . . . Restore us, O Lord

    and bring us back to you again.

    According to Pastor Nozuko Joyi of the Ap-

    ostolic Faith Mission of South Africa and

    Chairperson of the Interdenominational

    Women in Leadership Forum, the purpose of

    the prayer march was to put a stop to the in-

    creasing number of murders, rapes, elderly

    abuse, prostitutionandall other crimes in the

    Mthatha CBD and surrounding areas.

    Today we are gathered here to pray to the

    living God in an attempt to put an end to all

    the illicit deeds inour communities, she said.

    Pastor Joyi further said they were no longer

    safe in the places which are supposed to be

    their sanctuary referring to North Crest.

    The two groups met at Munitata Freedom

    Square where the prayers continued.

    Ngqongwana urged residents to work to-

    gether with the police in fighting crime and

    other deeds that painted a bad picture of Mt-

    hatha.

    Police are human like you and me; they

    cannot do it alone. Let us assist them in mak-

    ing sure that we restore Mthathas reputa-

    tion. Parents please guard your children,

    said the mayor.

    Another prayer session in Mthatha is

    planned for August 21.
