    ENSIONS between the AbaThem-

    bu King, Buyelekhaya Dalindye-

    bo, and his former right hand

    man, Chief Jongisizwe Jonas JJ

    Ndzambule, of Mthatha West,

    have reached boiling point.

    JJ, as he is affectionately known, is chief

    of Mthatha West that comprises Mandela

    Park, Slovo Park and Polar Park.

    He and King Dalindyebo united in the fight

    against President Jacob Zuma after Pres. Zu-

    ma sent a letter to Bumbane Great Place re-

    questing that theKing explainwhyhe should

    not be dethroned as king. Ndzambule also led

    the delegation that served Zuma with a peti-

    tion requesting him to stay out of Bumbane

    affairs.

    Ndzambule was very vocal in his support

    of the king and was always present at events

    andmeetings hosted by the King. Ndzambule

    was also elected as the Public RelationsOffic-

    er (PRO) of the AbaThembu Royal Council.

    According to sources, recent tension be-

    tween Ndzambule and the King had reached

    boiling point, to such an extent that the King

    Kingup inarmsover

    had sent his envoy called Eye of the Child,

    a non-governmental organisation, to Mt-

    hatha West to register each and every home

    and promised them title deeds fromKomkhu-

    lu (Great Place).

    In addition the Eye of the Child also went

    and collected rental from some institutions,

    such as Ecatu, that were renting land from

    Mthatha West.

    In an interview with Express, Chief Nd-

    zambule said he had no problem with the

    King but said it seemed that it was the King

    who has a problem with him.

    He is not God. I respect his status as he

    is bigger than me, but it does not mean that

    he can come and interfere in my areas with-

    out consultation because I am the one who

    allocated the sites in all the areas of Mthatha

    West. He must give me the respect that I de-

    serve and must not be booing me because I

    serve under him. He must learn not to cross

    the boundaries, said Ndzambule.

    He reminded the King to respect his bail

    conditions because what he is doing incites

    terror in the area.

    He denied that he had received a letter

    from the king. If they say they had givenme

    a letter they must produce the acknowledge-

    ment letter from me.

    Ndzambule revealed that they had submit-

    ted petitions to the Department of Tradition-

    al Affairs, National Prosecuting Authority,

    AmaDlomo Royal Council, AbaThembu Roy-

    al Council and to the speaker of the King

    Sabatha Dalindyebo Municipality warning

    them that the Kings actionsmay possibly in-

    stigate violence among members of the com-

    munity.

    It was also reported that the King had fired

    all the Chiefs ofMthathaWest. But theKings

    spokesperson, Reverend Siphiwe Thafa, de-

    nied these reports and said if the king was

    intending to dismiss his chiefs he would first

    call a meeting.

    He said the only thing the King did, was

    to write three letters to Ndzambule asking

    him to come to Bumbane Great Place and ex-

    plain why he was no longer attending meet-

    ings of the AbaThembu Royal Council as a

    member.

    Ndzambule has not attended about four

    meetings, with no report or apology, so that

    is why the king wrote these letters to him.

    But he never turned up even after those

    letters.What we heard from themedia is that

    they took a decision to quit from the royal

    family and the king never expelled them,

    said Thafa who refused to comment on the

    issue of Eye of theChild,which allegedly trig-

    gered the whole matter.

    A man (22) was arrested for rape at Mt

    Phakathi Coffee Bay near Mqanduli after he

    allegedly raped girl (19) in the area on Octo-

    ber 22.

    It is alleged that the victimwas on her way

    to her boyfriend when the suspect raped her

    at his home.

    The suspect was arrested and is expected to

    appear before the Kwaaiman periodical court

    soon facing a rape charge.

    . A woman (22) was arrested at Upper

    Ngqwarha for dealing in dagga weighing

    1.176kg with a street value of R2 000.

    The suspect was arrested when the police

    were doing their normal duties. She will ap-

    pear in theMqanduliMagistrates Court soon,

    charged with dealing in dagga.

    . A man (27) was sentenced to 5 years and

    7 months in prison for house breaking and

    theft.

    This follows a burglary at the FET College

    in Coffee Bay on September 2. Clothes and gro-

    ceries were taken.

    He appeared before the Kwaaiman periodi-

    cal court on October 21 and was found guilty

    as charged.

    Crime roundup

    BABALWA NDLANYA

    AMAN from Beaufort West, who is resid-

    ing in Cape Town, is blaming Mthatha

    Central Police Station Officers for failing

    to givehim information about hismissing

    firearm.

    Simphiwe Ntlabathi claims that his

    firearm has been kept by this Police Sta-

    tion since 2005. He said that the firearm

    had belonged to his uncle (Velile Ngxawe-

    ni)whopassedaway.Ntlabathi thenalleg-

    edly asked Ngxawenis wife to give him

    the firearm, since she said she did not

    want it.

    My aunt refused to give it to me, be-

    cause I did not have a firearm licence at

    the time. She then took it to Mthatha Cen-

    tral Police Station, said Ntlabathi.

    He said he got his licence in 2011 after

    his aunt had also passed away. When he

    went to the police station to collect the

    firearm, he was asked for a SAP 13 NU,

    which he brought to the police station.

    That was when he was told that his fire-

    arm had been taken by the National Task

    Force to Pretoria.

    But the problemwas that there was no

    name, persal number and rank of the po-

    liceman or woman who took the firearm

    which was registered in the occurrence

    book. That iswhy I amsaying this firearm

    is missing.

    Ntlabathi said he had tried several

    times to findhelp.Hehad evenphoned the

    provincial office to ask for help. They told

    him that according to their records the

    firearm was registered in his name.

    He was advised to open a case, but he

    said the case was not being investigated.

    He said hewasworried about his firearm,

    because if something happened, he could

    be in trouble because it is registered inhis

    name.

    I can end up in jail because of it. I am

    appealing to anyone who can advise me

    on which steps to take now to please as-

    sist. I had tried all the offices which I

    thought would have been able to help.

    Police Spokesperson for the Mthatha

    Cluster, Warrant Officer Denoe Koena,

    saidNtlabathimust goand report themat-

    ter to the branch commander if he feels

    that his case is not being investigated

    properly.

    He followed the right path by getting

    a licence and that the gunwas taken to the

    police for safety. But if it is now missing,

    he must report it to the police, said Koe-

    na.

    She said they appeal to the community

    to hand guns in to the police if the owner

    has passed away.

    Manworried about

    hismissing gun

    Simphiwe Ntlabathi is blaming the police

    for failing to help him locate his firearm.

    leni Administrative Area, Lusikisiki, are re-

    fusing that the corpse of ababywhowas found

    without a head and an arm, be buried in their

    area without its missing limbs.

    They demanded that the mother of the in-

    fant be released from prison so that she can

    go and fetch the missing limbs as they will

    never allow the baby to be buried in their ar-

    ea.
