Activist Busisiwe Seabe says convicted activist Kanya Cekeshe received ill-advised council from his former lawyer to plead guilty.

Following Fees Must Fall protests, activist Kanya Cekeshe was sentenced to eight years in jail in 2017, with three years were suspended for malicious damage to property after he was found guilty of setting alight a police vehicle.

In the Johannesburg High Court, convicted Cekeshe is due to find out whether he will be granted leave to appeal his conviction.

Activist and student leader Busisiwe Seabe talks to Clement Manyathela on The Xolani Gwala Show.

I am very nervous because we have been calling for the release of our comrade and brother for two years.

She says she hopes justice will prevail.

We don't support criminality...but Kanya's case is not one of criminality, he was found guilty because he was ill-advised by his legal advisers.

She says he believes that on poor advice from his then law, he agreed to plead guilty.

It is essential that the Rule of Law is followed, she says.

Seabe says since Advocate Tembeka Ngcukaitobi took on Cekeshe's case, the activist is more hopeful of a good outcome.

He was very disheartened until Advocate Ngcukaitobi took on his case.

We do believe he is on the right side of the law this time.
