"Ingonyama Madzikane II Diko passed away in the afternoon of Sunday, 21 February 2021 in East London, following [a] short illness," the kingdom said.

2 tenders, amounting to a R125-million contract, were awarded to Royal Bhaca, a company owned by presidential spokesperson, Khusela Diko's husband, King Madzikane II by the Gauteng Department of Health.

Some members of the AmaBhaca nation in the Eastern Cape protested last year against Diko accusing him of being the reason they did not have water and access to roads after the PPE tender scandal. They also accused him of having monopolised a number of their community development projects, including those involving Jo-Jo tanks. They also desputed that he was a king, saying that, his late father was only ah chief, and he (Diko) took over as the chief and we knew him as the chief only two villages, Bhaco and Ncunteni

The kingdom said, "iSizwe samaBhaca and the royal family are still coming to terms with this shocking and painful loss of our beloved father, son and husband, and will make further announcements once the kingdom has finalised the arrangements for the burial."
