Four Arrests in KwaNdengezi

Four Arrests in KwaNdengezi

During a protest on Sunday 27 January 2013 people of KwaNdengezi were threatened at gunpoint by an MK Veteran who is one of those who allegedly bought the corrupted RDP houses of the people of KwaNgendengezi. We opened a case of intimidation against this man but it was never investigated and he is still not arrested for that.

Yesterday at around 3p.m. the same MK Veteran and the councillor of the area, Mduduzi Ngcobo, came with the police and pointed out which protesters they wanted the police to arrest. This is how it usually works – the councillors tell the police who to arrest.

Four people were arrested. Two have been charged with public violence which is the charge that is always bought against people arrested while protesting even when their protest is 100% peaceful.

They are due to appear in Pinetown Magistrate court A this morning.

Abahlali will be out in our numbers to give them support.

Sekwanele!
