The alleged Brookside Mall unrest instigator on Tuesday denied that it was him in the video that trended on social media before the mall was looted and set alight during the unrest.

Mdumiseni Zuma (35) told the Pietermaritzburg Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday that the man wearing a white Fabiani t-shirt, a white cap and a red facemask on the video was not him. Zuma said that he saw the video a month after the unrest.

This video was played in court by the state during Zuma’s bail application.
