Nicholas Ninow arrived in court on Thursday again and he was yet again walking without shackles on his ankles- which caught the attention of the EFF's Mbuyiseni Ndlozi.
Ninow, who stands accuse for the sexual assault on a little girl in the bathroom of a Dros restaurant, has made another appearance in court.
The People's Bae has since taken to social media to share a video of Ninow arriving in court and he pointed out the alleged sexual assaulter was not chained.
"So the #DrosRape accused, who is also supposedly mentally ill, is not chained? White supremacy is real!" Mbuyiseni Ndlozi wrote.
The EFF spokesperson's tweet sparked quite the debate on social media, with tweeps agreeing whites were being treated differently in court.
Social media user @Ps_Mente commented: "Not chained but the student who fought for free education was chained. Black people must to learn to liberate themselves quicker because our kids will judge us as a useless generation."
However, there were those who saw nothing wrong with Ninow not being shackled, adding there are several factors considered when someone is chained in court.
Earlier Briefly.co.za reported Ninow will now be sent for psychiatric evaluation. The Pretoria Magistrates Court has ruled that the 20-year-old must be evaluated by three separate psychiatrists.
