A lion skin for the chief as grandson of Mandela reclaims title

Nelson Mandela beamed yesterday as he watched Mandla, his grandson, invested with the royal chieftainship due him by blood and custom but stripped from the Mandela family nine decades ago by South Africa’s British colonial rulers.

The colourful ceremony was mainly in honour of the increasingly frail Mr Mandela, 88, who was walking with the aid of a stick and supported by his wife Graça and aides. But he waived his right to the restored kingship of his home village of Mvezo, in favour of his 33-year-old grandson.

Mandla Mandela was draped in a lion skin by Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo, 42, king of the Thembu clans and one of the six kings of the Xhosa people, at the ceremony in the tiny village in the Transkei.

As preparations were begun to slaughter ten oxen to feed the guests, Patekile Holomisa, head of South Africa’s congress of traditional leaders, said: “This is really Nelson’s position but because of his advanced age it was decided that the honour would be bestowed on his successor.”

Mandla Mandela, who last week graduated with a degree in political science from Rhodes University, can now arbitrate disputes and try certain minor criminal and civil cases.

His powers, while mainly ceremonial, exceed those of a backbench member of the British House of Lords. “He is the link between the king, the ancestors and his people,” Mr Holomisa said.

However, according to the Port Elizabeth Herald, some claim that the restoration ceremony is a ploy to repair the damage to the tribe’s reputation done by charges faced by King Dalindyebo over 35 counts of murder, incitement to murder, kidnapping, extortion and arson.

King Dalindbeyo, whose trial has dragged on for more than a year, is alleged to have ordered his bodyguards to beat to death an 18-year-old youth. Three others came close to death after they were allegedly beaten with sjamboks — whips made from rhino leather.

They told the court that they had been summoned to a hut at King Dalindbeyo’s “great place”, forced to strip naked and lie face down as the King and his men assaulted them.

Mandla Mandela is the son of Makgatho Mandela, Nelson’s son who suffered from Aids and died two years ago. Nelson Mandela was born in Mvezo in July 1918 to a former chief of the Thembu royal tribe and given the Xhosa name Rolihlahla, meaning “trouble-maker”.

Soon after Rolihlahla was born, his father, Gadla, was deposed as chief by the British after he refused a summons to appear before a local magistrate with the words “Andizi, ndisaqula,” (“I will not come, I am still girding for battle”). Rolihlahla should have succeeded to the Thembu chieftainship, but he renounced the leadership to become a lawyer and fight apartheid.

“This is about the returning of our dignity and the restoring of our history,” said King Dalindyebo, amid drumming and ululating from hundreds of guests including tribal royalty from across the country.

Mandla Mandela said that his priority as chief would be to push for education and employment. “There are no jobs around here. People used to be reliant on agriculture. Now most rely on government grants,” he said.

MVEZO, South Africa (AP) -- Former South African President Nelson Mandela beamed Monday as he watched his grandson reclaim a traditional leadership post that Mandela had renounced decades ago to become a lawyer and dedicate his life to fighting apartheid.

Mandla Mandela, 32, was draped in a lion skin, the symbol of royalty, and officially installed as head of the Mvezo Traditional Council by the king of the AbaThembu, Zwelibanzi Dalindyebo, one of six kings of the Xhosa people.

"This is about the returning of our dignity and the restoring of our history," said Dalindyebo, amid drumming and ululating from hundreds of well-wishers, including tribal royalty from across the country, most of them clad in brightly colored traditional dress and beaded headdresses.

It was the first time in nearly 70 years that a member of Mandela's family from the Madiba clan took up the mantle of traditional leadership. Mandla Mandela, who graduated from Rhodes University's political science program last week, now has the power to decide disputes and try certain criminal and civil cases.

"He is the link between the king, the ancestors and his people," said Patekile Holomisa, head of the Congress of Traditional Leaders of South Africa.

Mandla Mandela told reporters his 88-year-old grandfather had expressed concern about disappointing his king when he renounced his claim to the role, but today was pleased "to see his father's chieftaincy restored in his lifetime."

Nelson Mandela's father, Henry, had been deposed in the early 1900s after he defied a summons from a local magistrate.

The anti-apartheid icon has been cutting back on his public role in recent years. Monday, dressed in a black and white animal print shirt, he walked with difficulty up the stairs but otherwise looked in good health and in radiant spirits as he delivered a short speech in Xhosa in a firm voice. He smiled broadly and waved to the crowd.

In a statement before the ceremony, Mandla Mandela said he looked forward to his office with "respect, pride and passion."

Mandla Mandela's father Makgatho, Nelson Mandela's last surviving son, died in 2005 of AIDS-related complications.

His mother, Rayne Mandela-Perry, said her late husband would have been proud to see his son carry on the family legacy.

"This is really Nelson's position but because of his advanced age it was decided that the honor would be bestowed on his successor," Holomisa said.

The ceremony, known as ubeko or anointment, took place amid gale force winds and swirling dust storms at the Mvezo Great Place, the seat of the Mandela house.

Set in the Transkei, the picturesque Xhosa homeland with its rolling hills and turquoise huts, the ceremony was a colorful affair with at least 10 oxen slaughtered for the guests' enjoyment.

South Africa, with its 11 official languages, has a multitude of ethnic people and groupings and traditional ties are strong especially in rural areas.

"I will be living among my people and I look forward to assisting with the numerous challenges that we face including social, poverty and health issues," Mandla Mandela said in the statement.

The country's Constitution protects traditional laws and customs, and Houses of Traditional Leaders act in an advisory capacity to the government.

"Monarchy and tribal leadership have a substantial role to play in the continued democratization of the country and I am thankful that this role will allow me an opportunity to follow in my grandfather's footsteps," Mandla Mandela said.

Madiba's grandson to be traditional leader

April 07 2007 at 09:33AM

By Sarah Lockwood

The mantle of traditional leadership that was cast aside by Nelson Mandela when he dedicated his life to fighting for democracy will soon be passed on to his grandson, Mandla Mandela, at a grand ceremony in the Eastern Cape.

The ceremony, on April 16 at the Mvezo Great Place in Mthatha, will be led by King Zwelibanzi Buyelekhaya Dalinyebo and will install Zwelivelile Mandlesizwe (Mandla) Dalibhunga Mandela as the head of the Mvezo Traditional Council in the Kingdom of abaThembu.

It will be the first time in nearly 70 years that a member of the Madiba clan has taken on the responsibilities of traditional leadership, which were dropped when Nelson Mandela renounced his claim to the chieftainship in order to become a lawyer.

His father, Chief Henry Mandela, had himself been deposed of his chieftaincy status in the early 1900s after he defied a magistrate who had summoned him.

In an official statement released last week, Mandla said he was honoured to accept the responsibilities of traditional leadership and intended to represent his family with pride.

"I am relishing the prospect of being a custodian of the abaThembu custom and I look forward to this position with respect, pride and passion," he said.

The 32-year-old is currently studying political science at Rhodes University and is due to graduate on April 13.

"Monarchy and tribal leadership have a substantial role to play in the continued democratisation of the country and I am thankful that this role will allow me an opportunity to follow in [my grandfather's] footsteps," said Mandla, the eldest son of the late Makatho Mandela, who died in January 2005.

"I am also particularly proud that he will be able to share in this historic moment as this reinstatement is a tribute to his contribution to the abaThembu people."

Mandela marries, ignoring "taboo" warning


THE QUNU village home of former president Nelson Mandela was a hive of activity over the weekend as his eldest grandson Mandla Mandela married his sweetheart Thando Mabunu in a stylish two-day affair.

Yesterday, about a thousand guests - both local and international - witnessed a traditional Xhosa wedding marked by song and dance near the family kraal.

Most of the guests, excluding the elder Mandela who was in one of his trademark "Madiba shirts", sported their traditional gear, which ranged from colourful Xhosa and Swazi dress to west African attire.

Even people of European descent donned African traditional gear, as they watched and listened to the competing traditional dancing and singing groups from the brides and groom's families and communities.

Mandela's wife Graça Machel, his longtime friend and lawyer George Bizos, amaMpondo King Mpondombini Sigcau, Queen Bongolwethu Ndamase and AbaThembu King Lwandile Matanzima sat in one tent, which faced the open space used as a ground for song and dance.

The traditional wedding started with a ritual called uTyiso Lwamasi that saw the slaughtering of a goat, some of whose meat was fed to the bride with sour milk.

Elderly women from the Madiba clan went into a rondavel with the bride, where the ritual was performed, and emerged to announce her new name, Nodayimane.

The groom's entourage, led by Mandla and his cousin Xolani Mandela, both on horseback, left the homestead and went to the Southern Hill kraal of Mandela's farm in Qunu. It is at the entrance of the kraal where the bride, whose entourage followed the groom's, stabbed the family spear into the ground as a sign of acceptance as a wife of the Madiba clan.

Ululation, song, dance and praise singing followed as the spear stood still, a sign that the ancestors had accepted the bride.

This was in spite of reservations and even comment by an imbongi (praise poet) that the marriage between Mandla and Thando was taboo in that they are both from the Madiba clan, but from different houses.

After the stabbing of the spear the entourage of the groom and the bride took turns singing and dancing to the delight of those who attended, including Graça Machel who joined the dancing at one stage.

Then the proceedings moved to one of the three big air-conditioned marquees where gifts were presented. Journalists and uninvited guests were barred from entering.

On Saturday, journalists were expelled from the yard in which the church wedding was taking place for taking photographs without a contract with the family.

Some journalists, including those who came from as far as Johannesburg, went closer to take pictures of the bride and groom. Mandla became upset and sent an SMS to a family friend identified as Pat to "politely let the journalists out of the premises".

Luxury vehicles delivered high profile people including all the Eastern Cape kings except AbaThembu King and Mandela's nephew Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo.

Dalindyebo, who was on the programme, also missed Mandela's son Makgatho Mandela's funeral where he was also supposed to speak.

Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini was represented by his daughters, one of whom is married to Mandela's nephew, Chief Mfundo Mtirara.

President Thabo Mbeki arrived with Eastern Cape Premier Nosimo Balindlela, but left to continue electioneering after about 20 minutes.

UDM president Bantu Holomisa was the programme director.
