Malema parties as arrest rumours swirl
Johannesburg - The Hawks have refused to comment on allegations that they are about to arrest ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema on charges of corruption.
Eyewitness News reports that Malema has been under investigation for receiving money relating to the manipulation of Limpopo government tenders.
Both ANC Youth League spokesperson Floyd Shivambu and Hawks spokesperson McIntosh Polela declined to comment to Sapa on Monday.
While rumours of his arrest were circulating, Malema did not appear concerned at all - he was partying up a storm with friends in Mauritius where he attended the wedding of a friend, David Mabilu.
Local pop stars like Mafikizolo and Zakes Bantwini and Professor were among the entertainment.
Malema was one of 300 wedding party guests flown to an exclusive five-star resort for a R10m three-day party.
He was reported to be drinking champagne, dancing, doing a stint in the DJ box at a local club and partying until the early hours of the morning.
Most of the wedding guests were expected back in South Africa on Monday.
Meanwhile, The Times reported that Malema’s Ratanang Family Trust has also come under extensive scrutiny.
Malema is apparently also being investigated by the Public Protector as well as tax authorities.
