Philan Gumede, the head of Durban’s Operation Dudula, on Wednesday appeared before the Durban tribunal for inciting public violence and breaking the Cybercrime Act.
Gumede, 36, is accused of recording a voice memo and relaying it to members of Operation Dudula, instructing them to collect and remove foreign immigrants, close their stores, and confiscate their belongings.
The organisation will have a march on Sunday in Durban to kick off the campaign in KwaZulu-Natal.
Gumede was granted bail of 5,000 Rand, according to Natasha Ramkisson-Kara, a spokeswoman for the National Prosecutor’s Office (NPA). One of the requirements is that you do not incite violence on social media.
The case has been rescheduled for May 24th. Cyril Ramaphosa, president of the African National Congress (ANC), discussed Operation Dudula, a campaign against undocumented foreigners, in his concluding remarks at the Mpumalanga Provincial Conference.
Their operations, he argued, should be halted. Operation Dudula is a protest campaign that is taking place around the country, asking that foreign nationals show proof that they are legally present in the country.
