JOHANNESBURG - Convicted Fees Must Fall activist Bonginkosi Khanyile's case has been postponed to next year January.

Khanyile appeared at the Durban Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

The Durban University of Technology student was found guilty on charges of public violence and failing to comply with police instruction during fees must fall protests in 2016.

He camped outside the Union Buildings in Pretoria earlier this year, asking for presidential pardon but Cyril Ramaphosa said the decision was up to the Justice Department.

In a video which was shown in court, Khanyile was seen committing acts of violence against police on the day of his arrest in September.

The National Prosecuting Authority’s Natasha Ramkisson said: “The matter was postponed to the 28th of January for sentencing and this is for the probation officer as well as the correctional officer’s statement to be finalised.”
