Fifth member of alleged terror group Crusaders arrested in Cape Town

The police have arrested a fifth member of an alleged terrorist group in Cape Town on Thursday.

The man was taken into custody after the Hawks found explosives he faces firearm-related charges.

The apparent leader of the National Christian Resistance Movement, also known as Crusaders, Harry Knoesen was arrested at his Mpumalanga home last week.

Clement Manyathela on the Xolani Gwala Show chats to Hawks spokesperson Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi to weigh in on the matter.

This is a long going investigation on this issue of terrorism, there is a lot of information we have already and this arrest was part of the ongoing investigation.

Mulaudzi says even though the investigation has not been concluded, the man was charged with possession of explosives and a firearm.

I have been informed that he was granted R1,000 bail and the matter will go to court early next year.
