In KZN|| SAPS Prevented A Citizen Arrest Of President Cyril Ramaphosa

According to a Twitter user, African Soil, South African Police Service members prevented a citizen arrest that was planned on the president of the country, President Cyril Ramaphosa. The arrest was planned to take place in KwaZulu-Natal, during the commemorations of Women's Day.

From what this user has twitted, it can be perceived that there was no coherence in this planned citizen arrest. The planning was poor and it would have needed cooperation from the President's security unit and his bodyguards. Regardless of what happened, it is alleged that SAPS prevented the arrest even though there are no clear details of how was the arrest going to be conducted, why was the president going to be arrested and how did SAPS prevent the arrest.

There were different views about the citizen arrest that did not happen with some people thinking that it was an April Fool's Joke, while others expressed the view that they would have loved to see the President behind bars, without even explaining what crime has the President committed to that warrant a citizen arrest

Citizen arrest is the arrest done by a private person with the intention of handover the suspect to the law enforcement agency.
