Three alleged violence instigators arrested.

Three people have been arrested for allegedly instigating the #FreeZuma violence that happened in KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng recently.

The government reported that 12 people were wanted for allegedly instigating the violence in some parts of KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng and only one was arrested.

It is also reported that the three people recently arrested are not part of the 12 people mentioned last week, who are suspected to be the masterminds of the violence and looting.

Protests erupted last week in parts of KwaZulu-Natal (KZN), after the former president Jacob Zuma handed himself over to police to serve a 15-month jail term for contempt of court.

Police Minister Bheki Cele said they have the names of the three people, but there are other names that have been given to the security forces.

“Unfortunately, we are not going to be able to name those people until they are arrested and come to court. But it seems as soon as tomorrow those names will come to the public eye,” said Cele.

They are expected to appear in court within the next few days.

Cele also said the police in KwaZulu-Natal have put together a team to trace goods that were stolen in looting and arrest people.

“That will help to understand that you can’t just move around, steal everything and go,” he added.

About 212 people have died and over 2 000 others have been arrested as a result of the protests.
