Fifth suspected unrest instigator arrested in KZN

A fifth alleged instigator of last week’s violence in KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng has been arrested.

Bheki Cele

Police Minister Bheki Cele says the suspect has been taken into custody in KZN.

"We'll expect that person to go to court. He has been telling the world that he is scared that he is going to be arrested. I'm sure if you tell people you are going to be arrested, you must be going something wrong, but that person is definitely in the hands of the police."

On Saturday, the minister said several other people suspected to have been behind the unrest had been nabbed.

Cele was on Monday checking in on the Pavilion Mall in Durban, which was one of the shopping centres spared from the looting.

He received a trading update from centre management.
