The Patriotic Alliance says it will reveal in court the names of the people it claims are the real instigators behind an audio message encouraging violence during the recent wave of unrest in Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal.

The party's comments follow the arrest of Bruce Nimmerhoudt, a regional chairperson of the PA who appeared in the Roodepoort Magistrate's Court on Monday on charges of inciting public violence.

Gauteng police arrested two suspects last week - one on 15 July in Roodepoort and a second man the next day in Westonaria. Both face charges related to the creation and circulation of inflammatory messages with the potential of inciting violence.
