Ngizwe Mchunu’s mother broke her silence after Ngizwe appeared in court and applied for bail but was denied by the Randburg Magistrate Court.
The court stated that Ngizwe is a flight risk.
His mother told the media that she wasn’t happy seeing him talking to journalist and said she told him to be not on the front line of this.
The mother went on to say she doesn’t believe her son was capable of instigating violence and that he encouraged anyone to loot.
She said it was painful seeing Ngizwe going down the dock after his court appearance and being painted as a hard core criminal.
