Pretoria - Around 100 women arrived at the Ga-Rankuwa Magistrate's Court outside Pretoria on Monday where more than 250 protesters were expected to appear for public violence at Lonmin mine in Marikana, North West.
One woman, Nombulelo Jali, 37, wept hysterically. She said police did not know what happened to her husband Themba Khalo Jali, 40, who she says was arrested on Thursday.
“I have come all the way from Harding in KwaZulu-Natal but we can't find him. We have frantically searched everywhere and we can't locate him. Police took him,” said Jali.
Police officers approached the group of women and asked them to vacate the court premises.
Some police wore protective helmets and shields and carried batons.
Four Nyalas drove into the court premises. - Sapa
