Should the king be treated like an ordinary criminal?
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.
