The Sunday Times of South Africa reports that Operation Dudula leader, Nhlanhla ‘Lux’Dlamini has been arrested and detained Johanneburg Central Police Station.

The newspaper quoted his deputy, Dan Radebe, as saying Dlamini was arrested soon after he had an interview with Kaya FM in Parktown.

A Soweto resident, Victor Ramerafe, claims that Dlamini and his colleagues raided his home claiming that he was selling drugs.

The newspaper reports that Ramerafe claims that they destroyed property at his house worth thousands of dollars.

Dlamini claimed that his arrest was instigated by members of the Economic Freedom Fighters, who are currently against his organization’s anti-immigration programs.

He is expected to appear in court on Friday at Roodepoort magistrate’s court.

Operation Dudula activists have been evicting so-called illegal immigrants from their rented houses and work places claiming that they have grabbed most South African jobs.
