Unhappiness about king’s imprisonment

2016-01-14 06:00

A mixture of chronic ulcers, depression and loss of appetite landed AbaThembu King Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo in hospital, the royal family said on Tuesday.

Spokesperson Prince Mthunzi Ngonyama said the king was still receiving treatment at the St Dominic’s Hospital in East London.

In a statement on Tuesday, Ngonyama said Dalindyebo was grateful for the support and prayers he had received during this “trying time”.

“You are encouraged to continue with the struggle to protect our heritage, our norms, values and identity as Africans, our indigenous legal system in administering justice in our traditional communities to ensure peace and order,” he said.
