After the Khoisan King of South Africa was dragged across the lawn in front of the Union Buildings in Pretoria, he and two other activists were arrested. They were charged with the illegal growing of cannabis.
However, after appearing in court, it was revealed that the three that were arrested are being released with a warning.
The case have been postponed to March
The group of activists have been camping outside President Cyril Ramaphosa’s office for more than three years and were busted with cannabis on Wednesday, 12 January.
On Thursday, they appeared in court facing charges of dealing in cannabis.
According to the regional spokesperson for the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), Lumka Mahanjana, the case has been postponed to 29 March for further investigation.
Khoisan King’s wife defends the use of the cannabis plants
The Khoisan King’s wife, Cynthia, spoke to Channel N-TV and stated that the cannabis plants were used for medicinal purposes.
“I am very cross this morning.
“The president don’t want to take a minute to come down and talk to us, to address us on issues he received in 2017. That’s only what we want from the president – to acknowledge the Khoisan people.
“It’s very heartbreaking,” Cynthia added.
