Warrant of arrest issued for Malema & co-accused for failing to appear in court

Published
A warrant of arrest has been issued for Julius Malema and co-accused for failing to appear in court. The EFF leader was expected to appear in the East London Magistrate's Court today.

He's facing charges for allegedly discharging a rifle during his party's 5th anniversary celebrations in Mdantsane in 2018. The five counts include the unlawful possession of a firearm and discharging a firearm in a built up area.

The case was previously postponed to allow the State to provide the Defence with the docket and video footage of the incident.
