Malema will not appear in court

2012-09-24 22:42

Johannesburg - Expelled ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema was not expected to appear in court on Tuesday, his lawyer said on Monday.

"We have not received confirmation of charges as yet... I can tell you that Mr Malema won't be appearing in court tomorrow [Tuesday]," Nicqui Galaktiou told Sapa.

She said a press statement would be issued on Tuesday morning.

City Press reported on Sunday that Malema was due to appear in the Polokwane Regional Court on Wednesday on fraud and money laundering charges.

The Sunday Times said he would appear in the dock, along with five individuals and four companies.

Last Friday, an arrest warrant was issued for Malema.

    No one had ever said officially he will appear in court. As for the media reports, mere speculation, and he did not help himself either with his paranoia that someone is after him. Anyway, anyone with five senses knows that all he has been doing lately has been to deflect from what he knew was coming - that he is going to be exposed as a sham socialist. The investigations into his dealings have been going on from way back. So in his mind, why not stir and cloud the water and when the ---- hits the fan they can always say he is being hounded for fighting for the down-pressed. Cunning maggot has really played some people for suckers over this. He is no less a user than his former colleagues. It is time South Africans wake up to reality and stop being so gullible.

      JOHANNESBURG - The full extent of Julius Malema’s legal and financial woes is expected to be revealed this week as he prepares to fight charges of corruption, fraud and money laundering. The former African National Congress Youth League leader will appear in a Polokwane court tomorrow but The Times newspaper is reporting he will be charged at the Garsfontein Police Station in Pretoria today.

  • anthony.kay.965 - 2012-09-24 23:57

    Not appearing in court? Is it a joke? What kind of justice is that? Talk, talk talk and nothing happens. Are they scared of him? He buys a house for R 3,5 Mil, he breaks it down to build a R 16 mil house, while he cried foul and told us that he was only living on his R20K a month salary!! Let's see if the Hawks are worthy their salt.

  • mphotokornel - 2012-09-25 00:55

    I think this goes to say that the SA justice system is controlled from somewhere we do not know...it is impossible for a warrant to be issued without having charges against any individual,are we indeed becoming a banana republic??i think we are fast approaching that

  • irvin.mkhari - 2012-09-25 01:09

    it seems like most people want to see malema go down,is not over yet do not celebrate yet is too soon to be excited.

      Nkosinathi Mwasi - 2012-09-25 04:36

      @ Irvin definatly hi will go down

  • pisciotta - 2012-09-25 02:14

    Question...Is Malema Gay? I've never seen any reports of him with a woman. I'd be comforted if he was gay. No breeding baby Malema's for the future.

      mphotokornel - 2012-09-25 07:26

      Wel he has a son,he's a very gud father 4 a record hope dat answers ur question

      Jellyarse - 2012-09-25 09:07

      No, but he'll learn very quickly when he becomes a super bi*ch to some real Gangsta in prison!

  • Sizwe Dlamini - 2012-09-25 04:18

    I still say I am 100% behind u Malema,although I don't know how u will be able to escape all these government agencies attacking u all at once,Malema should not worry he has a huge support from majority of black people,as for whites anyone should be worried if whites like him as a black man,if malema is jailed or not returned to the ANC in mangaung I'm taking my vote somewhere else,but never the DA

      johnwilliam.roberts - 2012-09-25 05:54

      you are as thick as him maybe you two should start dateing each other.

      jacques.smit - 2012-09-25 16:32

      At least the DA knows how to govern a province. just look at how much better the WC services run, compared to the poor state of municipalities, hospitals, schools etc, just to name a few in other provinces... You should stop thinking of the DA as a white party, they not, only a true racist will think that way... Vote for someone that has the skills to run this country and make you all better off...

  • byron.pienaar - 2012-09-25 05:16

    Sadly,it's not malema who is a problem in South Africa,it's the hatred,from like blacks like you, towards white people. Get over apartheid,most of us 30-20 somethings weren't part of it or helped it to exist.hell,malema wasn't even effected by apartheid.blacks(young blacks) should stop throwing the apartheid excuse and take responsibility for their actions and start contributing to SA and it's future.apartheid ended in the late 80's, black ANC has done nothing to uplift a country and make it a powerful country in Africa. Embrace the educated,as they can help educate the people that need education.withou

      Well said Byron

      tshepo.maganedisa - 2012-09-25 09:34

      @Byron i dont agree with your statement, you are generalising and to think that a majority yes majority of black n whites in SA are living side by side in harmony i think you are reckless by saying the problem is blacks hating whites, from my experience as much as some blacks hates whites its equally the same on the opposite.I dont think the problem is that but like any other country challenges are there but to go and point one problem and suggest that its the problem, its way incorrect.I dont hate whites nor Indians but i do support the ANC and i respect people who supports other organisations - so what is the problem?

    If we're lucky he'll skip court and go straight to prison!

      ephraim.mabunda - 2012-09-25 07:09

      what can i say is dat juju is innocent stil proven guilty

      werner.dippenaar.77 - 2012-09-25 08:53

      ephraim, i am waiting for you, my garden needs attention

      deon.louw.7505 - 2012-09-25 10:11

      Malema was already found guilty in a court of law for outstanding taxes early September, so he is not innocent.

    White kids need to be taught about black hero who played a huge role in bringing democracy because their cheap words which they get from their pareants\ we were not there,we not part of that\ will not take them far. Otherwise they need lectures to make them know that there were laws in this country which made sure whites are where and what they are compared to other races.\r\nUnfortunately even white bosses in the workplace they are helping in speeding up the creation of more juju's. Until white kids wake up and start to speak proper, this country will not move forward for them.

      gerald.parker.3956 - 2012-09-25 07:17

      When you learn to write PROPERLY then maybe just maybe white kids will read what you write. I do not know which black hero you are talking about. The only one I know and respect is NELSON MANDELA. You are one of the main reasons that this country is not going forward because you are living in the past with all of your rascist attitudes.

      russell.paschke - 2012-09-25 07:36

      Sure the apartheid laws had a huge effect on non-whites; no denying that at all. It definitely did not benefit ALL whites as it is often claimed, but rather a select few. In fact, very much like AA, BEE, ABC, XYZ, etc of today. Who benefits? A selected few and the rest are left to make do with what they have and get on with life. And this is the crux of the issue - regardless of what stupid policies and laws are in place, there are always those (black & white) that seem to rise to the top through hard work and honest dealings. If 18 years after independence apartheid is stIll being blamed for EVERYTHING, then all I can say is that those who blame the past are and will always be a bunch of losers. Africa is a "beggar" Continent always asking for and expecting handouts while blaming everything, but themselves, for all their failures. South Africa has managed to slip comfortably into that role as well. As someone once said "have mercy on them as they know not what they are doing!"

  • byron.pienaar - 2012-09-25 06:05

    Bud,the laws in apartheid did not give me some advantage.my parents worked their arses off,everyday.my father served his electrical apprenticeship wiring newly built schools in the rural areas of natal and transvaal. I went to school with blacks,played sport with them and made friends with them.I grew up working with them.the laws of current SA,which is setup by blacks for blacks,prohibits a white educated white from applying for a job.it prohibits white school leavers an opportunity to get a university bursary. It prevents whites,young whites, from actively contributing to SA future. The only people that haven't learnt from apartheid are the same ignorant people preaching to the uneducated masses to continue hating the white man.it saddens me that instead of walking together to solve a problem,the leaders will rather continue creating a divide between whites and blacks.the ANC doctrine is no different from the apartheid doctrine,only difference is that the minority that supported it,all benefited from it.all the ANC does from the majority is steal and lie to them.kids go hungry cause leaders are greedy.we can point fingers of blame,but as long as hatred is bred and fed,nothing will change.hate crimes in SA is still targeted to white people,by young blacks who was still swimming in a ball sack in apartheid.

    When does: \not appearing in court on Tuesday\ translate to: \will never appear in court\?

  • duma.nkabinde - 2012-09-25 06:50

    Biko once wrote ; a journalist from a liberal newspaper like the sunday times of Johannesburg describes a black student- who is only telling the truth as a militant and impatient young man-BIKO! Media feeds on white peoples fear of one man from Seshego!

      gerald.parker.3956 - 2012-09-25 07:24

      Tell me you clown. Which reporter from the Sunday Times revealed the Steve Biko tragedy. She is in politics today. If you think that whites fear Mad Bucket Malema you are a complete idiot.we are worried about how much harm that //// will do to South Africa

Throw him in the back of a police van and take hime on a sight seeing tour of Soweto and Polokwane if you must.

  • arthur.salvado - 2012-09-25 08:17

    Quite right barefoot, which court and when is laughable . Everyone is running scared of fat boy malema. There is no stopping this stupid corrupt foul mouthed fat guts. These charges are just buying time to appear to. E doing something. Fattie will win and shower boy will lose. Any bets ?

  • Sakhiwo - 2012-09-25 08:23

    Jullias Sello Malema is going too far in the history of South African politics.One day he'll rule this country.Keep making him famous.I wish these allegations can be true

      Will never happen. 1 brain cell no way.

      He might be better after 27 years in jail If Zuma wins again het might be jailed for a long period, if he don't win Malema might get a short time in jail.

  • julie.j.vanrensburg - 2012-09-25 08:40

    And why should he NOT appear in court? Does he (or his lawyer or government or others think he is God-Almighty and Holy Moses rolled into one, therefore being exempted from the ordinary processes of the law? Malema needs some serious discipline meted out against him - pity that six of the best is outlawed by the libtards, as aforesaid "six-of-the-best" works for recalcitrant, spoiled brats like Malema.....
