Jailed aba Thembu King Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo will not attend the funeral of his wife, Queen Nolitha Dalindyebo, on Saturday.
The royal family confirmed that the king would not attend as he is in prison, serving a 12-year term.
The queen died on August 10 after a short illness. She will, however, not be buried at Dalindyebo’s Bumbane Great Place.
Instead, the funeral and burial will take place at her home in Qhumanco near Cofimvaba.
