    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.

    THE community of Ndayeni location in Tha-

    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.

    The gruesome discovery of the corpse two

    weeks ago, on October 7, caused anger

    amongst community members, particularly

    the young people.

    They demanded that the family of the 18-

    year-oldmother, accused of killing the infant,

    leave the area. The baby was believed to be

    one-day old when it was found in a secluded

    area in the village.

    After the discovery, elderly women in the

    locality commenced a massive hunt for the

    mother of the baby. All the women in the lo-

    cality were called to ameeting and eachwom-

    an was milked and and their private parts in-

    spected.

    During that inspection an 18-year-old wom-

    an was allegedly found to have recently given

    birth. When she was questioned about the

    whereabouts of her child she was unable to

    give a proper explanation. Community mem-

    bershandedher over to the police and shewas

    arrested.

    Police spokesperson CaptainMduduzi God-

    lwana confirmed that community members

    refused that the baby be buried in their area.

    He said the family was ordered to leave the

    area but the chief of the area rescued them

    by keeping them at his place.

    He said the police tried several times to in-

    tervene by holdingmeetingswith community

    members from the area but their efforts were

    in vain. A meeting on Tuesday last week was

    also fruitless as members of the community

    were still saying they dont want the baby to

    buried in their area.

    SIMBONGILE MDLEDLE

    A MAN who is herding Mandelas cat-

    tle at Qunu farm near Mthatha denied

    that the cattle who died during recent

    months were neglected.

    MgcineniWisemanQingana said the

    cattle were not neglected because he

    and fellow herdsmen were looking af-

    ter them and they also have a supervi-

    sor to oversee the whole process on the

    farms in Qunu and Ncise. Both farms

    belong to the late statesman, Nelson

    Mandela.

    The man, who has been working on

    Mandelas farmsince 2000, saidheused

    to share jokes with Tata Mandela

    whilst they were on the farm, inspect-

    ing his livestock with him.

    He described him as somebody who

    loved livestockwholeheartedly.Qinga-

    nas utterances follow reports that Nel-

    son Mandelas cattle at Qunu farm are

    dying from neglect.

    He revealed that the only thing that

    hampers them was the late delivery of

    the feed to the farm. Delivery some-

    times takesmonths. Due to grass being

    dry in winter, they depended on lu-

    cerne for feed.

    He said the lucerne supply ran out

    some months ago and was only deliv-

    ered on Tuesday, October 21. About

    200 bales were delivered. If it was done

    according tomywishes, lucernewould

    always be available at the farm be-

    cause there is no grass and the size of

    the farm is not enough for somany cat-

    tle.

    Qingana confirmed that 10 cattle

    died this year and he believed that it

    was because of hunger and draught. He

    said he and the other herd boy reported

    everything to the supervisor who is al-

    ways at the farm.

    He said the supervisor reports to the

    manager, namedMimi,who is based in

    Gauteng and Mimi reports to Makazi-

    we the eldest daughter of Mandela.

    The Qunu farm now has 1 790 cattle

    plus many calves. Attempts to get hold

    of the supervisor, called Siya, as well

    as Makaziwe, were fruitless.

    Mandelas herdman says cattle are not neglected
