PRETORIA - Gugu Ncube – the Zimbabwean woman who was arrested during a "naked protest" at the Union Buildings in Pretoria – appeared in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Thursday, facing charges of public indecency.
Ncube claims to be the daughter of prominent Zimbabwean politician Welshman Ncube -- but the opposition Movement for Democratic Change politician, who is also a lawyer and a former cabinet minister in Zimbabwe reportedly denies paternity.
At her Union Buildings protest on Wednesday, Ncube, wearing only her panties and a piece of cloth slung around her neck, claimed to have been victimised and dismissed from her position at the University of South Africa after she reported a sexual harassment case against her boss.
The case was postponed to April 10, pending further investigations.
Advocate Khanyisile Dhlakama, for Ncube, questioned why police had not arrested a crowd of Khoisan protesters who have been camped at the Union Buildings last year, demanding to meet President Cyril Ramaphosa.
