Johannesburg - EFF leader Julius Malema is expected to appear in the Vanderbijlpark Magistrate's Court on Friday to face a charge of reckless or negligent driving.

Malema, leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters, was charged with reckless and negligent driving after he was arrested in December for driving at 215km/h in a 120km/h zone.

At his last court appearance on the matter on 29 January, journalists were denied entry into the courtroom by security guards. The guards claimed they were given orders not to allow any media representatives inside.

Gauteng traffic police spokesperson Obed Sibasa said at the time that Malema's legal team requested time to study the case docket and advise their client on a possible plea.

In a separate matter earlier this month, Malema was provisionally sequestrated by the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria. According to court documents, Malema owed R16m plus interest after failing to submit tax returns between 2006 and 2010.
