The EFF says it will go to the highest courts to fight for the release of #FeesMustFall student activist Kanya Cekeshe.

The party said this after the student's application to appeal his conviction and be granted bail was dismissed in the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court on Monday. Cekeshe, believed to be one of the last #FeesMustFall student activists still in prison, was convicted of public violence and malicious damage to property when he tried to set a police van alight during protests in 2016.

  EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi told News24 the party would fight for his release "until the end", adding the next stage was to take the matter to the High Court.
