South African king looking for volunteer to serve his prison sentence

I thought this quite interesting. South African King Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo was convicted of kidnapping, arson, assault and defeating the ends of justice for his actions against a group of his people.
But the interesting thing is he's dodging his 12 years sentence and looking for a volunteer to serve his term.
The king has met with President Zuma to help him 
The charges relate to Dalindyebo's mistreatment of his subjects between 1995 and 1996, on a farm he owned near a place called Mthatha.First of all, Dalindyebo set fire to the houses of three tenants to evict them because he believed they had breached tribal rules. He publicly assaulted three young men for crimes they had allegedly committed.On December 2, the Constitutional Court dismissed Dalindyebo's appeal against his 12-year jail sentence. In 2009, Dalindyebo was sentenced to 15 years in prison for culpable homicide, assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm, arson, and kidnapping.But on October 1, the SCA set aside Dalindyebo's culpable homicide conviction. It, however, confirmed the rest of the guilty verdicts. It reduced his sentence to 12 years. He was subsequently granted R6 000 bail pending his appeal to the Constitutional Court.King Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo spent Christmas with his family after his bail conditions were extended until December 30 by the Mthatha High Court on Wednesday afternoon.
