Dalindyebo is the latest high-profile visitor to Zuma's homestead.

Guests who previously met Zuma for tea include EFF leader Julius Malema, Police Minister Bheki Cele, former SABC COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng, and Black First Land First leader Andile Mngxitama.

Saturday's courtesy visit follows weeks of planning and meetings between the King's team and the Jacob Zuma Foundation.


King Dalindyebo reportedly wanted to check in on Zuma following the former head of state's stint in prison.

Dalindyebo has stated on the record that there were no hard feelings between Zuma and himself.


The pair had a famously fraught relationship in the past, with Dalindyebo previously insinuating that Zuma was responsible for his arrest on charges of assault and arson.


The King, who was welcomed with cheers at Zuma's Nkandla home, has however now changed his tune, pledging his full support for Zuma now and in the future.

Dalindyebo also expressed his disappointment over the judiciary's ill-treatment of Zuma.
