Durban: His previous court case may have been revisited in the light of the latest comment made against president Cyril Ramaphosa. Former Durban councillor and convicted fraudster Kessie Nair has been arrested for calling President Ramaphosa the k-word in a Facebook video.
Nair was arrested at his home on charges of crimen injuria and incitement of public violence on Wednesday, Hawks spokesperson Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said.
In a widely-circulated video, Nair announced that he is prepared to take a bullet or go to prison for the rest of his life.
“I… do hereby call for that k****r state president Mr Cyril Ramaphosa, yes I mean the k****r state president Cyril Ramaphosa, to be charged for frauding [sic] this nation, for oppressing this nation, for high treason, for failing and he’s the source to all crime violence poor healthcare, poverty that prevails in a so-called true democracy,” he said in the video which is almost five minutes long.
Nair was sentenced to six years in prison for fraud in 2005. He said that it took 13 years of introspection to release the video.
