A meeting of the AmaDlomo clan - to elect an acting king - took place at Bumbane Great Place just outside Mthatha today.
Dalindyebo's 23-year-old son Azenathi and his younger brother Jongisizwe were put forward as nominations for the position.
Family spokesperson Mfundo Mtirara says the provincial government will have to break the impasse.
“According to the law there is a commission and section 21 is what we will seek when the Mtirara family comes up with two names or is divided.”
Dalindyebo is serving a 12-year jail term in a correctional services facility in East London for a string of offences including assault, arson and kidnapping committed in the 1990s.
