Police minister Bheki Cele has welcomed the sentencing of one of the instigators of the July 2021 civil unrest.

Pietermaritzburg High Court sentenced Mdumiseni Zuma to 12 years behind bars, with two years suspended.

In September, he was convicted on charges of committing public violence and incitement to commit arson.

The charges are linked to the widespread looting and destruction that occurred at the Pietermaritzburg Brookside Shopping Mall during the unrest.

Cele says he hopes more instigators will be sentenced.
