Polokwane - An argument broke out between supporters of expelled ANCYL president Julius Malema outside the Polokwane Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.

Malema supporter Tony Lehlwana was hurling insults at President Jacob Zuma.

"Zuma is not a leader, 'shower man' must be out with his big head," he said.

A woman nearby called him to order.

"Don't insult our president. He is your president whether you like it or not," said Lethoba Mandela.

While they were exchanging words, another man questioned Mandela's membership of the ANC. She then produced a membership card with her photo.

She threatened to lay charges against another supporter who said: "hare batle makgowa mo [we don't want white people here]".

Malema was charged with money-laundering and granted bail of R10 000 on Wednesday.
