Johannesburg - AbaThembu king Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo has told President Jacob Zuma to stay out of royal affairs, the Daily Dispatch reported on Monday.

More than 200 AbaThembu senior traditional leaders gave him their support following a meeting at the weekend, the Eastern Cape daily reported.

It was called after Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister Richard Baloyi had written a letter to the king after a group of concerned royal family members, led by Thanduxolo Mtirara, requested Zuma to dethrone Dalindyebo.

Baloyi instructed Dalindyebo to convene a meeting of all the Dlomo houses.

'Go to hell'

"I cannot be told by Zuma and Baloyi to call a meeting of AmaDlomo. Who are they in the affairs of AmaDlomo?” Dalindyebo asked at the meeting on Saturday.

"No outsider will dictate terms on how I should handle my family matters. He can go to hell."

One of the traditional leaders, Jonas Ndzambule, said: "Zuma is becoming a dictator. He must not be allowed to do as he pleases. This is not a banana republic."

The meeting resolved to explore the possibility of interdicting Zuma to prevent him and his government from interfering.

The Dispatch said the presidency could not be reached for comment.

The Star newspaper reported that Dalinyebo used the opportunity to criticise Zuma again, calling him a "parasite", a "Zulu boy from Nkandla" and a "nonsensical Zulu boy".
