Fees Must Fall activist Bonginkosi Khanyile is appearing in the Durban Magistrate’s Court on Monday.
Khanyile is facing various charges including public violence and possession of dangerous weapons.
Khanyile, who is a former Durban University of Technology student, was arrested in September 2016 during student protest for free education.
He was in the forefront in mobilising student protest.
Their protest became violent when they started pelting police with stones.
Khanyile was denied bail on several occasions in lower courts until he took the matter to the Constitutional court.
He is expected to make a formal plea on some of his charges.
