The ANC’s former Nelson Mandela Bay councillor Andile Lungisa has been granted R10,000 bail by the High Court in Makhanda in Eastern Cape on Friday morning.

Before handing himself over to the authorities in North End prison on the 18th of September 2020, Lugisa claimed that he is not suited to the unpalatable food, uncomfortable sleeping arrangements, risk of violence and degrading ablution facilities that come with a prison sentence.

He was found guilty of assaulting a DA councillor with a glass jug in 2016, during a scuffle in council and sentenced to 2 years in prison.

However, he said he wants to appeal that sentence at the Constitutional Court.
