Alleged civil unrest instigator, Bonginkosi Khanyile, has been granted bail of R5 000.
The verdict was delivered by Magistrate Vincent Hlatshwayo at the Durban Magistrate's Court on Tuesday morning.
Hlatshwayo said it was in the best interest of justice to release Khanyile.
However, Hlatshwayo added some stringent bail conditions, including prohibiting Khanyile from posting on his Twitter account.
Khanyile is supposed to report to a police station either in Johannesburg or Durban every Monday and Friday.
The former Fees Must Fall activist is charged on a combined five counts of inciting public violence, two counts of holding illegal gatherings and not wearing a face mask while in public and two counts relating to the civil unrest.
The case was adjourned to September 23 for pre-trial processes.
