SOME Chiefs of the AbaThembu are furious
with President Jacob Zuma, since they be-
lieve the President is overstepping his
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
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
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

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-
Attempts to reach the office of the presi-

crime capital of the province,
brought the mayor of King
Sabata Dalindyebo (KSD) Mu-
Ngqongwa, Pastors and residents to their
knees last week at the Munitata Freedom
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
Two prayer groups covered different parts

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-

other deeds that painted a bad picture of Mt-

planned for August 21.
