Malema hate speech hearing on hold

2010-05-03 09:14
Johannesburg - ANC Youth League president Julius Malema's Equality Court hearing set down for Monday has been rescheduled to May 20, Afriforum said.

"There was a direction by the presiding officer of the court and it was removed from the roll for today," said Afriforum legal manager Willie Spies.

The delay was due to the unavailability of the different legal teams and could also be due to Malema's disciplinary hearing with the ANC which was also set down for Monday.

Spies said that both Malema and the ANC changed their legal teams.

'Shoot the boer'

The Equality Court complaint was lodged by the Afriforum Youth, who claimed that Malema's singing of the lyrics "shoot the boer" perpetuated hate speech.

The North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria earlier granted an interdict preventing Malema from singing the lyrics, pending the start of the Equality Court hearing.

The ANC disciplinary matter was reportedly about Malema not heeding party advice to not discuss AWB leader Eugene Terre'Blanche's murder, which many believed highlighted the dangers of singing such lyrics, as well as his expression of support for Zimbabwe's Zanu-PF leader Robert Mugabe.

President Jacob Zuma was attempting to broker a final political settlement between Zanu-PF and two Movement for Democratic Change groupings in Zimbabwe.
