Johannesburg - Trade union Solidarity has laid another charge of incitement to violence against expelled ANCYL president Julius Malema on Wednesday, for allegedly provoking further unrest amongst striking mineworkers.

The latest charge comes after Malema addressed mineworkers at Gold Fields' KDC West mine near Carletonville on Tuesday, and called on mineworkers to embark on a nationwide strike, said spokesperson Johan Kruger in a statement.

Kruger said the charge would be added to the charge sheet following Solidarity laying a charge against Malema for incitement to public violence and intimidation last week Wednesday.

"Solidarity feels that urgent intervention is needed to ensure that Malema is prevented from continuing his inciting statements and so-called mine revolution."

He said Malema was an opportunist, causing alarm among ordinary South Africans, and playing a dangerous game by exploiting mineworkers for his personal gain at the cost of the country's stability.

Malema was expected to speak to SANDF soldiers on Wednesday afternoon in Lenasia, Johannesburg.
