Cape Town - Eight United Democratic Front Veterans and Unite Behind activists are set to appear in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court on Thursday morning on charges of trespassing.
The activists were arrested on Wednesday after a group occupied the National Prosecuting Authority offices in Cape Town. They demanded that NPA head Shaun Abrahams take action against those involved in corruption. They also called for the arrest of President Jacob Zuma.
The activists also handed over numerous letters and petitions demanding that the more than 700 charges against Zuma be reinstated against him.
