Mmbelwa Chiefs Council has ordered Inkosi Chindi to temporarily step aside on health grounds.
In a letter addressed to Mmbelwa District Council which Nthanda Times has seen, the Chiefs Council Secretary, Inkosi Mpherembe said the decision was made on Monday during the Chief’s Council meeting.
The letter further directs that all business related to Chindi Royal Court will be channeled to Inkosi ya Makhosi Mmbelwa V.
“May your office further take note that any business related to the Chindi Royal Court should be channeled to the office of His Royal Majesty Inkosi ya Makhosi Mmbelwa V.
“Additionally, any communication bearing Inkosi Chindi’s official stamp shall meanwhile be rendered invalid,” reads the letter in part.
Chindi, whose headquarters are at Euthini, is yet to react to the decision.
Inkosi Chindi has always been in the media for wrong doings, ranging from excessive beer drinking to violent behaviour.
In December last year he was arrested by police for damaging property belonging to a Mr. Chikwawa.
