Johannesburg – The Vice President of the EFF, Floyd Shivambu, spent some time behind the bars in the Free State after he was caught speeding in Winburg.
Head of the Communications Department for Road and Transport in the Province, Hillary Mophethe, confirmed the arrest and said that Shivambu traveled from Gauteng to the Free State and traveled 182 km / h in a 120 km / h zone on Sunday morning.
"He was alone in the car, after being caught he was taken to the cells and his car was later confiscated and later returned after he was released on bail," she said.
Mophethe confirmed that Shivambu did not oppose arrest, cooperated with the police and that he would appear in court this Friday.
This is the second time this year that Shivambu is in trouble. A few months ago he was caught in front of the camera with his hand on the throat of Netwerk24 photographer Adrian de Kock outside parliament.

De Kock said he had gone to Shivambu to try to get comments from the Patricia de Lille hearing, just to see if he had comments as an opponent.
"I went to him and said to him:" You have a comment, "and he said:" No, you have to delete the photo. ", And I said: & # 39 I can not delete the photo & # 39 ;.
"And then he started to grab my camera, I tried to remove the photo's … He went in front of my camera and then tried to break my camera," De Kock said at that moment.
