Lekota comes to Malema's defence - report

Johannesburg - Cope leader Mosiuoa Lekota defended EFF leader Julius Malema at the weekend, saying his income source needed to be revealed, The Star reported on Monday.

"They say Julius owes R16m in tax," Lekota told supporters at the launch of the party's election manifesto in Bloemfontein on Sunday.

"How does he owe tax of R16m? How much were they paying him?

"You see, they tell us he owed that money, but they don't tell us what was the source of income, where did he get such amounts of money to owe that amount."

He claimed that those controlling the government had stolen the money and put it in Malema's name, leading to the unpaid tax allegations against him.

"He is a young, innocent person who didn't know... It is sad that the men and women with whom he entrusted his life did what they did to him."

The Economic Freedom Fighters leader was previously the African National Congress Youth League president , but was expelled from the ruling party in April 2012.

Malema was last month placed under provisional sequestration in the North Gauteng High Court over unpaid tax.
