Malema's court appearance

See the latest pictures from Polokwane where Julius Malema appeared on charges of money laundering.

Polokwane - Expelled ANC Youth League president Julius Malema was granted bail of R10 000 by the Polokwane Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.

Malema was officially charged with money laundering, for allegedly "receiving proceeds from unlawful activities".

The affidavit he made in support of his application for bail was not read out in court. The case was postponed to 30 November.

Malema appeared with his business partner and co-accused Selbie Manthatha.

An affidavit by Manthatha was read to the court by his counsel. It detailed his family life, his business and his assets.

Before Malema's affidavit could be read, the court adjourned for five minutes.

When the case reconvened, bail was immediately granted to both of them.

Supporters clung to the gates outside the court waiting for feedback on the decision about Malema's bail.

Hearing that he had been granted bail, they broke into song and dance.

Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said no incidents of violence were reported.

"The crowd is very orderly and I hope it will remain smooth like this throughout the day."

The crowd outside had swelled to nearly 1 000 people in anticipation of an address by Malema.
