Police officers, including members of the public order policing unit, had been positioned outside the court ahead of Dlamini’s appearance. Dlamini said struggle veterans such as Steve Biko are not resting in peace.

“I’ve heard that I will not be around for two weeks before I’m killed, I will be the happiest person underground because I would have died for my people,” he said.

IOL reported that Dlamini’s lawyer, Ike Khumalo, explained that the movement’s leader was arrested like a “hardcore convict.” He added that the charges are laughable and political in nature.

Operation Dudula leader Nhlanhla Lux Dlamini spends night in jail, arrested after EFF laid criminal charges

Briefly News also reported, Nhlanhla Lux Dlamini, the leader and founder of Operation Dudula in Soweto, Johannesburg spent the night in jail after he was apprehended by the police on Thursday afternoon, 24 March following a radio interview.

Dlamini was arrested after formal criminal charges were laid against him by an elderly man named Victor Ramerafe with the help of the Economic Freedom Fighters at the Dodsonville Police Station.

Operation Dudula members barged into Ramerafe's house in search of drugs over the weekend. The members of the organisation apparently believed that the elderly man, who is also a former EFF branch chairperson, deals in drugs. They say members of the community gave them a tip-off about the alleged criminal activity.
