AbaThembu king Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo joined mourners at the Mthatha airport despite earlier rumours that he might not attend his uncle, Nelson Mandela’s, funeral.

The king was seen conferring with politician and Mandela family friend, Bantu Holomisa, and traditional leaders such as Ngangomhlaba Matanzima before he went inside the airport’s reception where Graça Machel and Winnie Madikizela-Mandela sat next to each other waiting for Madiba’s body to arrive. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
