Further investigations delay Mcebo Dlamini's case

Written by

The case of FeesMustFall leader and former Wits University SRC president Mcebo Dlamini has been postponed for further investigations in the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court.


The court will also wait for the outcome of complaints about alleged political interference following a meeting with the NPA at Luthuli House.

The protests over fees are said to have been discussed at the meeting.

Dlamini is facing charges of theft, assault, public violence and malicious damage to property following violent students' protests.

The matter will be back in court on June the 15th. Dlamini spent three weeks in jail before being granted bail of R2 000 by the High Court in Johannesburg.

The Wits University SRC says it hopes charges against FeesMustFall leader and former SRC president, Mcebo Dlamini will be dropped.

Mkhari says they are hoping the charges will be dropped because at the end of the day Mcebo is not a criminal.

"In fact he is a student leader that was leading the movement that was calling for something genuine. The call for free quality decolonised education. It's one call that we all agree is genuine. Our hope is that charges be dropped," says Mkhari.
