'Politcal Prosecution' - Niehaus Is Back In Court For Allegedly Violating COVID-19 Regulations

Mzwanele Manyi, the spokesman of former president Jacob Zuma, lamented the "political mistreatment" of Carl Niehaus, who is back in court for allegedly violating COVID-19 guidelines.

Carl Niehaus appeared before the Kwa-Zulu Natal Estcourt Magistrate Court.

It's been ten months, and this extremely basic case, according to experts, has been delayed. Carl Niehaus asserts that there is no case, but his political opponents are using the courts to exact revenge against him.

The previous Umkhonto Wesizwe Military Veterans Association representative, Niehaus, was apprehended in July 2021 while conducting a live television interview outside the Estcourt Correctional facility where former President Jacob Zuma was incarcerated.

At the time, the gathering violated the lockdown regulations, and those are the charges he is facing. According to the disaster board, violating the rules could result in a fine or a prison sentence.

Social pundits argue that the story of the RET advocate is similar to that of a few other conventional residents who abused COVID-19, but paid a fine or left uninhibited, yet Niehaus is being rejected and his issue is becoming political.

During his previous court appearance, the court viewed two video clips: one depicting the events preceding his capture and the other depicting his capture. The case will return to court for additional evidence.

Lieutenant colonel Letuba Jack Ramonana, a Digital Forensic Investigator, is the second state observer about this subject. Yuri Gangai is the state investigator in charge of this investigation.

Ramonana informs the court that he was tasked with analyzing Niehaus' tweets. This statement led many to believe that an attempt was made to apprehend Carl Niehaus before he traveled to assist Zuma, as his virtual entertainment posts were being reviewed by the authorities.

Many argue that this declaration proves what pastor Lindiwe Sisulu said about the right to free speech being thrown out the window and residents disregarding their guaranteed rights under the current government.
