The leader of an indigenous South African group was released on bail on Thursday, one day after his dramatic arrest for growing marijuana outside the president’s office in a years-long protest, IgbereTV reports.
The activist, who calls himself King Khoisan South Africa, walked into court wearing only a traditional loincloth and a pelt headdress.
He was granted no-cost bail and the case was adjourned until March. As he left the court, he promptly lit a pipe containing marijuana.
Some 20 police officers, including some on horseback and in riot gear, arrested King Khoisan on Wednesday on the lawn of President Cyril Ramaphosa’s offices
