Gugu Ncube, the daughter of MDC co-vice president Welshman Ncube was on Wednesday arrested outside the Union Buildings in Pretoria after she staged a nude protest.
Ncube reportedly said that she stripped because nudity is a sign of her dignity which had been taken away. Ncube is quoted as saying:

… nudity is a sign of my dignity that l have been stripped off.
I have nothing more to protect, my dignity. All l want is for President (Cyril) Ramaphosa to take note of the abuse I am suffering at the hands of UNISA and the South African Police.
I want the University of South Africa (Unisa) management to show the country, Thuma foundation, Commission for Gender Equality and other interested parties, my resignation letter they claim I tendered. This is my demand.
I was unlawfully manhandled out of my employment at Unisa for reporting my immediate boss for asking for sexual favours in exchange for my job.
I have seen corrupt police come to arrest me unprocedurally because my abuser has money to pay them. I will be heard.
South African Police spokesperson Captain Daniel Mavimbela confirmed the arrest.
