A renewed call for the arrest of former president Jacob Zuma's children has been made. In a statement, the Democratic Alliance called for the SAPS to arrest Duduzane Zuma, Edward Zuma, and Duduzile Zuma for inciting violence. This latest call comes after police arrested a suspect for allegedly inciting violence on Twitter. The same suspect, identified as 'Africansoil' on twitter, recently appeared before the magistrate's court and was granted bail of R 3000. The DA has called for police to arrest three of the Zuma siblings for their statements believed to have ignited the riots and lootings which took place in KZN and Gauteng in July.
"The DA calls on the South African Police Service (SAPS) to urgently expedite the arrests of Duduzile Zuma-Sambudla, Edward Zuma and Duduzane Zuma. In July, the DA laid criminal charges against the three Zuma siblings following comments on social media and the press encouraging and inciting violence following their father’s incarceration," read the statement.
In the statement the DA further accused the police service of having double standards. It urged the police service to take similar steps against the three "Zuma s siblings"
"This smacks of double standards, and could lead to the conclusion that South African law is not implemented equally. The DA demands that all citizens including the politically connected be punished to the same standard," read the statement.
Meanwhile, the former president is currently serving his sentence for contempt of court. He is currently in a prison hospital with an undisclosed illness.
