Fees Must Fall activist Bonginkosi Khanile is due to go on trial in the Durban Regional Court on Monday on charges of rioting last July.
Khanile is one of 19 alleged instigators of violence during the riots who were arrested last year. He is accused of inciting violence and violating COVID-19 regulations that banned gatherings at the time.
During Khanile’s bail application, the state said there was a video recording of him allegedly addressing people at various locations. Khanile is out on bail of 5000 rand on the condition that he cannot post on his Twitter account.
Since late last week, the Hawks have arrested 25 other alleged instigators who allegedly worked as a team to incite violence. They are tried separately.
