The AmaXhosa Kingdom is expected to announce a new king on October 16 at Nqadu Great Place in Willowvale.
This comes after the acting King Dumehleli Mapasa passed on a few weeks ago. He was buried last week Friday in Centane.
The late Chief Mapasa was acting in this position in the AmaXhosa Kingdom after King Zwelonke Sigcawu passed in November 2019.
Since last year there were so many negotiations about the person who must take over as the AmaXhosa King. Rumours doing the rounds is that some royal family members want Prince Ahlangene Sigcawu to take the throne.
