Durban Magistrate court grants Bonginkosi Khanyile R5,000 bail



South African govt has granted bail to an alleged Bonginkosi Khanyile for R5,000.

His release on Monday was made with strict conditions by the Durban magistrate court and over R5, OOO bail attached to it.

Last Month August 20, the 31-year-old Bonginkosi was arrested by the South African police at his Wits University student residence.

He was charged with inciting public violence, holding an illegal gathering and not wearing a face mask in public during the unrest and looting in Durban in July.

He has been held at the Durban Central police station while awaiting the outcome of his bail application.

During his second appearance, the state submitted five videos to support its argument against the granting of bail.

In one of the videos, Khanyile is allegedly seen addressing a group of people at a taxi rank. He is heard encouraging the group that “those who are burning tyres and blocking the roads must continue to do so until [former president Jacob] Zuma is released”.
