Convicted AbaThembu King Dalindyebo begs Zuma for presidential pardon

King of Thembu, Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo, is reportedly seeking a presidential pardon from Jacob Zuma’s office in a desperate last minute bid to avoid a lengthy jail time, according to a report.

The Supreme Court of Appeal sentenced Dalindyebo to 12 years in jail in October for culpable homicide, arson, kidnapping, assault and defeating the ends of justice.

The Sowetan newspaper reported on Friday that Dalindyebo will base his application for a presidential pardon on the fact that his crimes were committed before the dawn of democracy in the early 1990s, the Sowetan reported.

But criminal law expert Advocate James Grant told the newspaper that it will be hard to convince the president to intervene.

The Presidency had not responded to the paper’s queries at the time of going to print.
