JOHANNESBURG - Fees Must Fall activist Bonginkosi Khanyile has been granted bail of R250 in the Constitutional Court.
Kanyile was arrested almost six months ago during demonstrations over the cost of higher education.
He’s accused of damaging property and inciting violence at the Durban University of Technology and had been denied bail on three previous occasions.
After the State’s advocate Andy Bester failed to answer questions as to why Khanyile was still being kept in jail, Chief Justice Moegeng Moegeng called for a 10-minute adjournment.
When proceedings resumed, the State announced that an agreement had been reached and that Khanyile will be released on bail.
The student activist will be released on condition that he does not intimidate security and management and that he does not obstruct police if and when they are on campus.
