Legal representative Dali Mpofu argued that the bail amounts suggested by the state — of R2,000 and R3,000 — were too high as most of the accused were unemployed.The state told the court they are relying on common purpose in the matter.“Some went to the doors, some sang incitement songs. In terms of association, in terms of participation, I can’t inform the court at this stage that accused [number] 1 was the one who shouted at the minister,” said Jacobson. headtopics.com

“The videos need to be analysed for that, and for that the state needs time. So at this stage we cannot say ‘accused [number] 1 did this, accused this did that’. We are relying on common purpose and say everyone was actively involved.”The state said it had verified the addresses of the first 13 accused but could not verify the other addresses due to time and the other accused being from outside Gauteng.

“The task team didn’t sleep last night. They went physically to the addresses of the 13 people whose addresses could be confirmed,” said Jacobson.  Mpofu raised an issue of continuous assault on the accused. He said their cellphones were confiscated without permission and they were forced to hand over their pin numbers for investigation.
