Julius Malema arrives at court

2013-04-23 09:13

Expelled ANC Youth League president Julius Malema has arrived at the Polokwane Magistrate's Court for his appearance on fraud and corruption charges. Watch. WATCH

Polokwane - The fraud and corruption case against expelled ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema and four others was postponed in the Limpopo High Court on Tuesday morning.

Magistrate Janine Ungerer ruled the matter would resume on 20 June, when a court date for their trial would be set.

Malema is accused of having made nearly R4m from corrupt activities. He is out on bail of R10 000 and faces charges of fraud, corruption, money-laundering, and racketeering.

Appearing with Malema were his business associates Kagisho Dichabe, Lesiba Gwangwa, Helen Moreroa and Makgetsi Manthata, who were granted bail of R40 000 each on 25 September.

They appeared in the Limpopo High Court building as the Magistrate's Court was gutted by fire last year, nearly a month after their first appearance.

Malema's friend Jacob Lebogo accompanied him to court.

Several Malema supporters arrived at the court on Tuesday. In contrast to previous court appearances they did not sing outside the court.

Streets leading to the building were closed with barbed wire. Police said precautionary measures were taken to guard against unruly behaviour but, in the event, the only disruption was traffic congestion in the area in the early morning.
