Ngizwe Mchunu was arrested last month by the government. He was fingered as one of the instigators who led to unrest and looting in KwaZuluNatal and Gauteng provinces.
Mchunu has compared his arrest to that of the late South African President Nelson Mandela. He was later released on bail after spending several days behind bars.
He said even though his arrest was short he also went through what Nelson Mandela went through thus he compared himself to those who fought for freedom.
Ngizwe Mchunu received support from many people in South Africa including the daughter of former president Jacob Zuma, Duduzile Zuma.
