Breaking News: ANC councillor Andile Lungisa granted bail of R10,000

ANC advisor Andile Lungisa was granted bail in the amount of 10,000 R.

Judge Sunil Rugunanan issued a ruling in the Makhanda High Court on Friday.

This means that he will be released from prison again until the result of his leave to apply to the Constitutional Court.

“If I had given up the bail, if the appeal had been successful if it could have been, then the applicant would have been deprived of his liberty unnecessarily; the interests of justice would not have been served.

“However, if the bail is upheld and the appeal permit fails, he will inevitably continue to serve his sentence,” the judge said.

Lungisa was convicted in 2018 of assaulting DA adviser Rano Kaiser during a scandalous council fight in 2016.

He was sentenced to two years in prison for smashing a glass jar on the emperor.
