Dalindyebo was being treated at a private facility in East London for chronic ulcers.
It was the second time he's been hospitalised since his imprisonment for arson, assault and kidnapping.
In January, just ten days into his 12-year jail term, the controversial royal went to a health facility after taking part in a hunger strike.
Correctional services spokesperson Manelisi Wolela says Dalindyebo returned to his cell today.
“If anyone goes to an external hospital, the offender gets constantly monitored to see if it’s appropriate for them to continue receiving the privilege.”
ABATHEMBU CLAN STILL UNDECIDED ON DALINDYEBO'S REPLACEMENT
The AbaThembu nation is still undecided on a person to take over from Dalindyebo.
Last week, a meeting of the AmaDlomo clan - to elect an acting king - took place at Bumbane Great Place just outside Mthatha.
Dalindyebo's 23-year-old son, Azenathi, and his younger brother, Jongisizwe, were put forward as nominations for the position.
Family spokesperson Mfundo Mtirara said the provincial government would 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.”
