“I saw disruption taking place in the chamber. Someone was tapping his feet on the table. It was at that stage that I decided to take out my camera to record. Before this‚ I saw wrapped up piece of papers thrown into the air by ANC councillors seated on the right-hand side of the house‚” he said.
“The speaker requested that one of ANC’s councillors leave the chamber and after refusal‚ pieces of papers were tossed into the air. That’s when I decided to take the video as evidence in case something should happen to me.”
In the video which was played in court a group of people can be seen and heard chanting and singing as speaker Jonathan Lawack and other officials try in vain to restore calm.
A person – said to be Lungisa – is seen striking at Kayser with a glass jug.
Kayser tries to block the jug with his left hand but misses and the jug slams into the left side of his head. Kayser falls to the ground bleeding and unconscious.
The case continues.
