Dear President Cyril Ramaphosa


The purpose of this letter is to honestly appeal to the spiritual consciousness of leading national government, the African National Congress to earnestly reflect on our heritage and historical background without ideological prejudice.

In solidarity to the supremacy of the Congress of Traditional Leader and traditional customary laws and rules, we wish to register and further extend our concerned grievances on matter King Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo incassaration.   United Nations adopted the Indigenous People's Rights Resolution on the 13th September 2007.

United Nation General Assembly was therefore guided by principled purpose of United Nation's Human Rights Charter to fulfil the obligations assed by the State in good faith in accordance with the UN Charter. UN Charter affirmed that all people contribute to the diversity and richness of civilizations and culture  and this constitute common history and heritage of humanity.

The adoption of South African Constitution in 1996 violated the indigenous Kingdom Rights to land which existed in South Africa's immemorial times. How I wish I could bring Stonehenge to South Africa government of national unity(Rainbow Nation) to show there was a time when Britain, England had savage culture. How I wish to bring back Stonehenge and show African National Congress (ANC) that King Tshaka, King Moshoeshoe, King Cetywayo
King Sendza Ngakhona. King Hintsa and King Sabata Jonguhlanga Dalindyebo fought against Nationalist Party's ruthless apartheid government.


We are a descendent of the Koi Kingdom, Xhosa Kingdom, Zulu Kingdom, Venda Kingdom, Sotho Kingdom,
Tswana King, Shangaan Kingdom, Swazi Kingdom, Ndebele Kingdom, Pedi Kingdom

The documented history of Traditional Leaders of South Africa clearly indicates that Houses and Traditional existed prior 1483 before the European settlers set their feet on the shores of South Africa. There were house and ten Kingdom ruled by Kings of Xhosa Kingdom, Koi Kingdom, Zulu Kingdom, Venda Kingdom, Sotho Kingdom, Tswane Kingdom, Shanganan Kingdom, Swazi Kingdom, Ndebele Kingdom and Pedi Kingdom and they were all ruled by these respective Kings under the monarchical system, we can also confirm that various Kingdoms were sovereign governed.
Therefore the indigenous people courts determined all forms of disputes between and amongst members f the traditional village in line  with indigenous laws and custom. Ten Houses of Traditional Kingdoms has continued to exist with determination of Traditional community disputes based on reconciliation principles

In 1989 the Front-Line States under Organization of African Unity mandate, sit down in Zimbabwe Harare, made a statement of principle, set guidelines for negotiation process. This mandate of the OAU Ad-Hoc Committee on South Africa acted as a preventative to maintain and seized of the issues of a political resolution of the South Africa Question.

The undertaking of the Harare Declaration Statement of 1986, sub paragraph of paragraph 16 stated;

16.5               All shall enjoy universally recognised human rights, freedoms and civil liberties, protected under an                         entrenched Bill.
16.6               South Africa shall have a new legal system which shall guarantee equality of all before the law.
16.7               South Africa shall have an independent and non-racial judiciary.
16.8               There shall be created an economic order which shall promote and advance the well being of all                              South Africa.
16.9               A democratic South Africa shall respect the rights, sovereignty and territorial integrity of all                                       countries and pursue a policy of peace, friendship and mutually beneficial co-operation with all                               people.

We believe agreements on the certain principle statements did not constitute the foundation for an international acceptable solution which aimed at enabling South Africa to be a rightful and equal partner among the African and world community of nations. How can we move forward while the past is pulling us back.  There is not medicine to cure prejudice  and racism.  Government is compelled to use and exhaust all avenues which are instrumental to promote equal justice and peace. The cultivation of human rights culture should remain focused on restorative justice earnestly.

There is so much ambiguity in our Judicial Court System, King Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo treatment and sentence was based on impunity due to the fact that this Constitution maintain Section 47 of the Act, there is so much prejudice, racism and biasness in South African Justice Systems. Our government has ambiguity in the interpretation of the Constitution. South African Judicial System is not transparently fair when applying and passing the law.

When the Congress of Traditional Leaders of South Africa (CONTRALESA) objected to the certification of this Constitution in 1996 on the bases that the text did not recognize Traditional Courts, both ANC and South African Constitutional Court held that Traditional Courts were contemplated in the "other court" namely;
Constitutional Court, Supreme Court of Appeal, High Court of South Africa and any other established court or recognized in terms of Act of Parliament..

The question still remain does Africa National Congress (ANC) government deserve credit for making strides in restoring Traditional land to its rightful owners, the indigenous people who were dispossessed from their land during the apartheid era? How can government land restitution program provide remedy's while our Constitution maintains racist laws like the Native Land Act of 1913. In its literal sense  Section 25 of the Constitution has made all government intervention unconstitutional. When Congress of Traditional Leaders objected the certification of 1996 Constitution, government of national unity under African National Congress (ANC) established a Law Commission that was aimed at establishing and investigating and give report on Traditional Court in South Africa.

The Commission completed its investigation and published its findings or report in January2002, the recommendation of the Commission was the proposal of new legislation process of recognizing Traditional Courts in South Africa.
Six years later (2008) Traditional Courts Bill which was introduced by ANC in Parliament was never passed, a new version of the Traditional Bill was published in the Government Gazette No 40487 dated 9 December 2016,
this new version contained and maintained the same provisions that led the Traditional Leaders  to object the  certification of  1996 Constitutional

South African Historical Background

From the very 1st day the European settlers set the foot on the shores of Azania in 1483, our people became their host while they were our visitors.  Pre-Colonial South Africa was ruled by Kings under the monarchical system.  The various Kingdoms were sovereign States.  They were institution in which the position f head of State was filled by the King, not as a result of elections, but via inheritance or dynastic succession.  This was the Indigenous People's system of governance in all spheres, indigenous people had no problems until European settlers invaded our land.

The experience and history teachings is this; people and government have never learned anything from history, or act on principle deduced from it. It would be too dangerous if history is ignored. There are well documented historiography of how the European Invaders at the instruction of their mother land unprovoked, invaded, annexed, occupied, seized, appropriated, expropriated and dispossessed Azania's Indigenous Kingdoms of the lands, their systems, their religion, their economies, their industries, their live stocks and wealth and forcefully imposed to the Indigenous Kingdom and people their cultures, system, language, education and this perpetuated the European Settlers deceitful deeds, they established a country illegally and illegitimately, enacted laws and system which were and still continues to violate the rights of the Indigenous People.

The mandate of true liberation movements was stand and fight side by side with Traditional Leaders, the causal of the unprovoked Invasion of the Indigenous Land and Property by European Settlers and the resistant to the unprovoked invasion by the Indigenous Kingdoms and their subjects. 

That resistant by the Kings was gruesomely dealt with by the  Colonial Countries by ways of torture, murder, incarceration, deceit, theft and legal establishments, Both Royal British and Royal Dutch were in the centre of forcing our  Kings into exile and in LAND GRABBING the Traditional People's Land.

The Concise Description of an Issue to be Addressed

With can proudly say that is a prophecy in reverse and that colonialism, slave trade and missionaries are the bastion of Western civilization and culture in Africa.  We are correct to the extent that colonialism serves as a vehicle of implantation of cultural imperialism in Africa.  Colonialism, perceived in the context, is an imposition of foreign rule over indigenous traditional political setting and foreign dominance and subjugation of Africa people in all sphere of their social, political, cultural, economic and religious civilizations.

Colonial and imperial settlers sparked immediate response from the Africans. We are still against all those who collaborated with European Settlers and formed new foreign rules in Africa. We believed that ethnic tribal was in Africa were caused by the collaborators of Colonialism when Traditional Leader rejected European Settlers foreign laws.
Older interpretations of these reactions characterized them as misplaced actions of disillusioned rulers acting under the influence of superstition and witchcraft.  In contrast to this.  more recent views see the earl opposition to imperialism as a well-ordered process with specific significance for the eventual development of nationalism and the colonization process which set in after the Second World Ward.

After the completion of partition, rebellion and uprisings continued, at this state protesting against the introduction of colonial rule.  Resistance was localized and limited to the countryside, usually sparked by the collection of taxes, expropriation of land, enforced growing of certain crops, the actions of colonial officials, the introduction of Western education, or the renunciation of indigenous culture, which affected daily life in the tribal context.  In these instances, religious cults and the spirit of media usually played important roles

The deceptive predatory skills of the European Settlers were, and continue to be instrumental in their perpetual control of the minds and souls of the unsuspecting, naive, poisoned, brainwashed and somewhat mentally paralyzed indigenous communities.. The organic and original issues pertinent to invasion, annexation, appropriation, expropriation and finally the unprovoked destruction of the Indigenous symposium was never dealt with viz;

1.             Rights and self determination of Indigenous People.
2.             Uncompromising & unconditional Rights of Indigenous Lands and Resources
3.             Rights to free participation and Informed Consent.
4.             Rights to subsistence development.
5.             Right to 100% own Traditional Lands and control all mineral Resources.
6.             Rights to Intellectual Property Rights to claim back resources taken from the land.
7.             Rights to preserve history, heritage and culture through Indigenous Peoples Intellectual Property.
8.             Rights for the recognition of Indigenous Institutions with structural customs.

Our concerned is that the indigenous people of Azania have suffered from historic injustices as a result of, inter  alia , their colonization and dispossession of their lands, territories and resources, thus preventing them from exercising, in particular, their right to development in accordance with their own needs and interests, there s an urgent need to respect and promote the inherent rights of indigenous peoples which derive for their political, economic and social structures and from their cultures, spiritual traditions, histories and philosophies, especially their rights to their lands, territories and resources.


This is many of the worse injustices in South African history that has resulted from the expropriation of Indigenous People Private land by Royal British and Royal Dutch. The history has shown how the land rights of the Indigenous African people were/was progressively eroded, but today Indigenous Peoples Land Rights is scarcely exist at all. History has explicitly discussed the extended to which  Koi-son, Indian and whites have also suffered loss of their land, homes, and businesses as a result of expropriations by apartheid government.

To ensure that these injustices never recure, Liberation UNION of Azania propose for a new unambiguous Anti-Expropriation Clause. This will prevent expropriation for other than "genuine" purpose, and in such cases proper compensation based on market value, sentimental value, and subsequent losses would have to be made.

If government at any level wanted land or other assets for any other reason, such as the provision of schools, housing,  parks, or wherever, it would have to by it by voluntary agreement just as anyone else would have to.

Liberation UNION of Azania urges for complete protecting and protecting of the rights of Indigenous People across South Africa, ignoring the indigenous people rights and tradition, African National Congress government will be perpetuating the illegal British establishment Colony new approach. Therefore Liberation UNION of Azania believe that the South Africa is;

1.             To date South Africa is an illegal British& Dutch establishment.
2.             The European invasion and annexation was not reverse to its origin. The assimilation of democracy through   CODESA was a deception ploy to perpetuate reconciliation propaganda , theft and plunder of the               indigenous land fronting the ANC and its allies through lied democracy.
3.             Freedom of the indigenous people  should take the formation of indigenous structural system without            foreign influences.
4.             We strongly believe that Colonized Azania should be led by the Kings and Chiefs and jointly execute                executive Traditional powers in restoring the lost dignity of Azania's Kingdom.
5.             For Azania to be morally and socially stable, the Kingdom executive powers should be rested to the House of                Lords, where all laws of the land will be enacted.(like Queen Elizabeth).
6.             All nine Provinces should be relegated to administration.
7.             All foreign nationals who lived in Azania be granted equal rights as indigenous people.
8.             Liberation UNION of Azania believe in order to balance economy and bring sanity and comfort to our             people, a system based on indigenous traditional culture and customs led by our traditional leaders and          council should be reinstituted.

It is for these reasons that we call for the immediate release of the late King Sabata Jonguhlanga Dalindyebo's son, King Buyelekha Dalindyebo and restore his Kingship.

I wish to hear from in the future.

Sincerely yours

Muzuvukile Sompeta Xolo
President Of Liberation UNION of Azania (LUA)
