Lindiwe Bon­gela via SMS King Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo must rot in jail so that he can think about all the poor peo­ple he killed and whose houses he burnt down to the ground. It must be made clear that the law ap­plies to ev­ery­one. Peter Maa­bane Emalahleni, Mpumalanga King Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo should be treated like any other crim­i­nal. The sta­tus one holds is ir­rel­e­vant when it comes to break­ing the law. He is a king to his clan, but no one is above the law. He should serve his sen­tence. Maybe then, he will also learn how to re­spect peo­ple in his life and how ar­ro­gance does not pay. Sipho Gaut­eng King Dalindyebo is a South African. All are equal in the eyes of the South African law. He com­mit­ted a crime and should be treated like an or­di­nary crim­i­nal. If he is not, our laws are mean­ing­less. Mzwandile Dono­van Malingo Philippi, Western Cape As some­one who grew up in the 1970s in this beau­ti­ful place called Mvezo, went hunt­ing with his late fa­ther, King Sa­bata Dalindyebo, and even vis­ited the Great Place of Bum­bane, I am deeply shocked by the king’s be­hav­iour. I be­lieve that ev­ery hu­man be­ing who shows re­morse and re­pents should be for­given. How­ever, the law must take its course no mat­ter if you are a king or a pres­i­dent.
