EFF leader Julius Malema and EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi will appear in the Randburg Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday on charges of assault. They are being prosecuted for allegedly assaulting a SAPS colonel two years ago during Winnie Mandela’s funeral.
AfriForum announced last July that it intended to approach the court with a mandamus application to compel the NPA to take a decision on the prosecution of Malema regarding this case. The NPA announced in September that they would indeed prosecute Malema for the alleged assault.
Malema insists he never touched the policeman.
