Malema To Hand Over R1.8 Million Mercedes Benz To King Dalindyebo

Economic Freedom Fighters will be hosting a welcome party for AbaThembu king Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo over he weekend and that will see the party leadership handing over keys to a brand new Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe SUV, worth more than R1.8 million.

This comes after King Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo officially joined the Economic Freedom Fighters after ditching the Democratic Alliance which he had joined during Jacob Zuma's era after a fall out with the ANC.

Initially, King Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo had announced during an EFF rally that he was going to receive the ML class, but he will no longer receive that because it was discontinued. The king will however be rolling in a new set of wheels befitting for a king.

The Economic Freedom Fighters had previously vowed to restore the dignity of AbaThembu king who once served a jail term and the EFF leadership used to visit him in prison and advocated for his release.

The R1.8 million GLE would be officially handed over during a ceremony at the King's Nkululekweni residence in Mthatha as revealed by the Economic Freedom Fighters in a statement. This was also confirmed by Dalindyebo's spokesperson Mthunzi Ngonyama.  

He said the celebratory event would start at 10:00. Ngonyama described the gift as a restoration of Dalindyebo's dignity.

In his invitation, with an accompanying photograph of the luxurious car, Dalindyebo's spokesperson Mthunzi Ngonyama said the car will be making its way into the King's palace over the weekend so that the king can begin to use it for the assigned royal duties.

"We will be warmly welcoming her. You are so invited because this is part of Kumkani Zwelibanzi's dignity restoration that we have fought for," he said.

Dalindyebo during the local government elections campaign when he officially joined EFF he ridiculed ANC officials arguing that, unlike Julius Malema, they did not respect kings. 

He said government officials give kings X3s and X5s cars that get stuck in mud.

King Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo said Malema's gift was of "royal calibre."
