As former president Jacob Zuma’s supporters on Thursday planned a series of activities to put pressure on authorities to release him from jail, prominent Zuma champion Carl Niehaus was arrested.

Niehaus, the spokesperson for Mkhonto weSizwe Military Veterans Association (MKMVA), was arrested by police in Estcourt on Thursday afternoon.

He was accompanied by KwaZulu-Natal radical economic transformation (RET) chairperson Nkosentsha Shezi to the Estcourt Correctional Services facility to lend support to Zuma, who arrived there in the early hours of Thursday morning.
