Durban - Kessie Nair has been granted bail and will be home for Christmas.
The 60-year-old was arrested in September and charged with crimen injuria for calling President Cyril Ramaphosa the k-word in a video that went viral on social media.
Nair was denied bail in his first bail application in October and remained behind bars.
His attorney Chris Gounden argued that the State was on a witch hunt to persecute Nair and “he is being persecuted because he's Indian”.
He will report to Fort Napier in April for a mental evaluation.
