Ngizwe Mchunu’s family says they are shocked by the court’s decision to keep the former Ukhozi FM presenter behind bars.
They say he should have been granted bail on Wednesday since he is accused of a schedule 1 offence.
Mchunu appeared briefly at the Randburg Magistrate’s Court as one of the suspected instigators of last week’s violent protests.
Meanwhile, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) is opposing bail in the matter involving Mchunu.
Mchunu will remain in custody for another week following his appearance.
