King’s high time
AbaThembu King Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo narrowly escaped spending time in jail this Christmas.
The dagga-smoking king had his bail extended until Wednesday after he appealed for clemency and refused to hand himself over to the Mthatha Maximum Correctional Centre to start his 12-year sentence.
He hopes Number 1 will overturn the conviction and pardon him.
But Dalindyebo was apparently sleeping when news of his reprieve arrived.
Speculation was rife that he was so high he had to sleep it off, as journalists camped outside his home.
