South Africa: Dudula Movement Leader Nhlanhla Lux Dlamini Reportedly Arrested

South Africa: Dudula Movement Leader Nhlanhla Lux Dlamini Reportedly Arrested

Nhlanhla Lux Dlamini, the leader of the controversial Dudula Movement which has been targeting shops and vending stalls owned by foreign nationals, has been reportedly arrested.

Lux, who rose to prominence as a part of the Soweto Parliament first rose to prominence when they defended shopping malls in Soweto during the July looting riots last year following the arrest of former president Jacob Zuma.

The EFF and the Dudula squared off in Soweto earlier this week following the attack on 59-year-old Soweto resident Victor Ramerafe.

The EFF viewed the attack on Ramerafe as an attempt to provoke the EFF, as he was apparently an EFF member.

Operation Dudula members on Sunday had allegedly raided his house and demanded that he bring out drugs on the premises.

The EFF demanded that Lux be arrested within seven days.

TimesLive spoke to Operation Dudula deputy chairperson, Dan Radebe, who confirmed to them that Lux had been arrested after an interview he did with Kaya FM on Thursday. Radebe said:

He was informed that it had to do with the Dobsonville case.

Radebe said Lux was being detained at the Johannesburg central police station.

Police confirmed on Wednesday that a case of housebreaking had been opened against Lux by the victim and the docket had been handed over to the provincial SAPS for further investigations.

Speaking to Kaya FM on Thursday, Lux denied that the Operation Dudula Movement was a vigilante grouping, comparing it to Pagad.

President Cyril Ramaphosa, in his remarks to commemorate Rights Day, warned individuals involved in vigilantism.

What lux is doing might be understandable. But when it all comes down to it killing a killer also makes you a killer. So by his own definition, he has become the criminal he is trying to chase out. You can't just invade people's houses searching for drugs. You can't just grab an illegal immigrant and force march him out of the country. That's all breaking and entering, home invasion, malicious damage to property, assault, trespassing, extortion, obstruction to justice, obstruction to peace and terrorism. You know who else has these kinds of rap sheets, criminals, mobsters. He has become the thing he was trying to defeat
