The controversial monarch is serving time for a string of crimes including arson, assault and kidnapping relating to offences committed in the 1990s.
He handed himself to authorities 10 days ago after several failed bids to avoid imprisonment.
EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said, “The leadership of the EFF found that the king had been admitted as of last night to St Dominic Hospital. The King had been admitted because he was on a hunger strike.”
Ndlozi says Dalindyebo agreed to stop his hunger strike after meeting Malema.
“The King feels he doesn’t belong here in prison and doesn’t deserve what is happening to him.”
CAPE TOWN – Nine days into his 12-year jail sentence, former AbaThembu King Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo, has been admitted to hospital.This comes as an Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) delegation led by its leader Julius Malema was visiting Dalindyebo at the East London Correctional Centre today.
