JOHANNESBURG - There have been claims that the arrest of Operation Dudula's leader Nhlanhla Lux Dlamini was a result of the Economic Freedom Fighters, however, the political organisation's leader, Julius Malema has rubbished these claims.

Dlamini was arrested last week Thursday, 17 March and he is now facing charges of housebreaking after he ransacked an elderly man's house on the belief that he was dealing drugs. The man in question is 89-year-old Victor Ramerafe, a former branch secretary of the EFF.
