Mchunu’s incitement case postponed

Former Ukhozi FM DJ, Ngizwe Mchunu’s case has been postponed to July 28 at the Randburg Magistrate’s Court in Johannesburg, Gauteng.

Mchunu handed himself over to the police after a warrant for his arrest was issued for his alleged involvement in instigating violence during the recent unrest and looting that rocked KwaZulu-Natal and parts of Gauteng.

This follows a series of recordings that went viral on social media where Mchunu is demanding that Former president Zuma be released from prison.

He faces a charge of inciting public violence.

Authorities say he is among four of the six people who’ve already appeared in court in connection with the mayhem.

NPA spokesperson, Mthunzi Mhaga says Mchunu allegedly made utterances in a briefing that he held in Bryanston, which is within the jurisdiction of the Randburg magistrate’s court, where these utterances amount to commit public violence.

“we will be opposing bail because when he heard that he was wanted, he left Johannesburg through a private jet and when pressure mounted for him to be arrested, he handed himself over to the police,” says Mhaga.
