On Tuesday, the alleged #DrosRapist appeared for the first time in court, but tweeps immediately picked up he was not in ankle chains.
The man, Nicholas Ninow, who was accused of sexually assaulting a six-year-old girl in Dros on 22 September made his first appearance in court on Tuesday.
The court case made headlines and social media was flooded with posts about Ninow's trial. However, apart from their disgust for the man's alleged actions, tweeps pointed out he was not wearing ankle chains like black people, who appeared in court- for example Duduzane Zuma.
So, Briefly.co.za decided to take a look at some of the reactions Ninow's lack of ankle chains received.
According to social media users, the lack of shackles on Ninow was a sign of the white supremacy in the country.
Social media user @KeNnaGoitseOne wrote, "I hope 1 day, black people in SA realise that our worst enemy is our own black people. Mcebo was chained by black police officers. We need not shy away from what black people do to other black people when they are in positions of power."
