Johannesburg - Fraud-accused Julius Malema's former friend Boy Mamabolo appeared in the Polokwane Magistrate's Court on Wednesday on 72 counts of fraud.

The charges related to his chairmanship of the Limpopo Geographical Names Committee, the Hawks said on Wednesday.

The case was postponed till 27 May.

Mamabolo was released on bail in the Polokwane Magistrate's Court on 31 January.

He was granted R10 000 bail, said Hawks spokesperson Paul Ramaloko.

Mamabolo was embroiled in a court battle with Malema after he allegedly sent a threatening text message to the former ANC Youth League leader.

He allegedly wrote in the SMS he would exhume Malema's mother's body and take her remains to Malema's grandmother's home in Seshego.

This was apparently in retaliation for Malema allegedly sending his allies to seduce Mamabolo's girlfriend.

The crimen injuria case was provisionally struck off the court roll on 29 January.
