State opposing bail for jailed Diepsloot community leaders

Diepsloot residents will meet on Tuesday morning to decide a way forward.

It follows Monda’s court case where three protest leaders were remanded in custody.

Lifa Nkala, Loyiso Toyiya, and Jack Hlongwane were organizing protests against high crime rates.

They were arrested for public violence and made their first appearance on Monday.

They now also face charges of intimidation and damage to essential infrastructure.

The case was postponed to allow investigators to collect further information.

They will return to court on Wednesday.
