Dudula frontman Nhlanhla ‘Lux’ Dlamini to spend weekend behind bars – SABC News


The case against Operation Dudula chief Nhlanhla ‘Lux’ Dlamini will be heard at Roodepoort Magistrates’ Court on Monday. Lux faces charges of burglary, theft and malicious damage to property.

The lawyer for the head of the Dudula operation, Nhlanhla Lux, says he is disappointed that the police misled him into thinking they were ready to pursue the case today. Lux was due to appear at Roodepoort Magistrates Court, west of Johannesburg, this morning. However, he will now have to spend the weekend behind bars before appearing on Monday.

Lux faces charges of burglary, theft and malicious damage to property.

An elderly man laid charges of breaking and entering, intimidation and assault on Lux at Dobsonville Police Station in Soweto on Wednesday.

The man said he was assaulted by Dudula members after breaking into his home over the weekend, accusing him of being a drug dealer.

Lux’s lawyer, Ike Khumalo, says he thinks the charges against Lux will not go to court.

“Yesterday they assured us that they would bring him today, that’s why we are here. We thought that by today we will be ready to go, but unfortunately it will be Monday. We’ll be there and they’ll find us ready on Monday. The charges (are) burglary and theft and damage to property, but we heard they will add intimidation. So we’ll wait and see. But we don’t think the charges will stand.

This morning a group of Operation Dudula gathered outside Roodepoort Magistrates’ Court to picket in support of their leader.

They were singing songs of struggle and calling for his release, claiming he was innocent.

Last night Lux addressed his supporters outside Johannesburg Central Police Station, where he said he would let the law take its course and would not mind spending time behind bars.
