King’s high time

CityPress - - Voices -

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.
