S5 TIMBER AND
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
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

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
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-
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
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.
