Former radio DJ Ngizwe Mchunu is expected to appear at the Randburg Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday morning.
On Monday, Mchunu handed himself over to police after a warrant for his arrest was issued for allegedly instigating violence during last week’s unrest and looting that rocked KwaZulu-Natal and parts of Gauteng.
At this stage, it is still unclear as to the exact charges he will be facing.
Alleged instigators arrested
On Monday, Police Minister Bheki Cele gave the assurance that an alleged ring leader of the violence and looting in Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal will be arrested.
Three more people have been taken into custody and are expected to appear in court soon.
Police are adamant that they will apprehend more people following the violence and looting that disrupted business activity last week.
One of the alleged instigators was arrested on the West Rand.
Cele said they are determined to ensure that all those who are behind the criminal acts are brought to book.
More than 200 people have been killed in the week of violence and looting that followed the incarceration of former president Jacob Zuma.
President Ramaphosa says instigators will be arrested and no one will be allowed to mess up our democracy:
