Former Wits SRC President, Mcebo Dlamini weighed in on the tensions between the South African Union of Jewish Students (SAUJS) and the Wits Palestine Solidarity Committee (PSC) by saying it shows how the university serves the interest of the Zionist. WATCH

Johannesburg - The case against student activist Mcebo Dlamini has been postponed in the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court on Thursday.

State prosecutor Steven Rubin said there was video footage that still needed to be viewed. Rubin asked if the matter could be postponed to October 5 for disclosure.

At his last court appearance, Dlamini told the court that his legal counsel had to seek medical attention and was unable to make it to court.

He said he had shown the prosecutor the text message he had received from his lawyer.

Lawyer Khathutshelo Nelson Mathibe is the new legal counsel for Dlamini.

Dlamini appeared on charges of violating a court order, public violence, assault, theft, and damage to property. The charges relate to the 2016 Fees Must Fall protests at Wits University.

He was arrested in October 2016, but was released on R2 000 bail on November 9 in the High Court in Palm Ridge.

Dlamini said when he returned to court on October 5, he would know if the State had a strong enough case against him.

"Postponements are becoming a trend, but when we return we will know their [the State's] legal standing," Dlamini said.
