Zuma's Ally In Danger? See How Many Guards He Uses Now

Source: CitizenSeveral arrests of HAWKS and related NPAs were made in July 2021. People were arrested for inciting violence and riots. South Africa was left on fire after crowds were outraged by the arrest of Jacob Zuma. Things got worse and millions were lost when buildings were destroyed. People died and jobs were lost. There were people whose brains were plotting a coup and sabotaging the current ANC leadership. All of them are the results of the ANC faction and are visible to the public.

Tensions in the ANC have led people to use the arrest of Jacob Zuma as a scapegoat to sabotage Ramaphosa and his leadership. Several people, including Ngizwe Mchunu and Zamaswazi Majozi, were arrested in connection with incitement to violence.

In the trial of the alleged instigator of the riot, Ngizwe Mchunu, the pre-trial hearing is scheduled for January 31, 2022 under the Disaster Management Act. 

Mchunu, a staunch supporter of former President Jacob Zuma, is suspected of being one of the organizers of the violent riots that broke out in the KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng areas in July. The case is pending a state investigation.

Pindy Myondwan, a spokesman for the South Gauteng National Prosecutor's Office (NPA), said the state needed more time to complete some of its investigations before the case could proceed. "As an NPA, we cannot comment on the ongoing investigation." "This investigation will be used as evidence in court," Mönondwan said.

According to the NPA, Mchunu is said to have used social media platforms and press conferences to appeal for Zuma's release after he was arrested for disobeying the Constitutional Court. Mchunu reportedly threatened to plunge the country into chaos if Zuma was not released. In September, former National Correctional Services Commissioner Arthur Fraser overturned a Medical Parole Board decision to keep Zuma in prison and release him.

Mchunu was escorted to court by armed guards and a group of men, including Boninkoshi Hanile, a former Taxi Must Fall activist. Mchunu said he was innocent of the charges against him. At the end of July, he was released on a loan of R2,000.

Ngizwe Mchunu, a close ally of Jacob Zuma, was seen with a female bodyguard as he exited the court. People believed that once he was arrested for inciting violence, he was vulnerable and he needed protection.
