Johannesburg - The case against an ANC Youth League member, who allegedly hit a journalist on the head with a brick, was postponed for trial by the Polokwane Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.

Clifford Mohloana, 30, would go on trial on February 14, said Limpopo police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Mohale Ramatseba.

Mohloana allegedly hit Limpopo-based freelance journalist Chester Makana with a brick.

Makana had been investigating allegations that duplicate voting tags were being printed at a photocopying shop, shortly before delegates at the provincial elective conference picked their top five leaders.

Makana alleged that two men stormed out of the shop, grabbed his camera and destroyed his memory card, then chased him. He went to a police station to open a case against his attackers.

Mohloana handed himself over to the police on December 18 after learning that they were looking for him.

      Judging by the hilarious twaddle on his FB page and the vetgat pics of himself he already has. Many, many times. Then he eats them.

    i just wish the ANC can open eye and tackle the problems, especially the out of control ANCYL. BTW....seeing they call themselves as a youth league...(ages between "15 and 34" - World Health OrganizationI) why not just form another party? That way Malema can "join" the politics "again".....and help with sorting out the problems in the country............aaaaaahhhhh

      you say "Malema to help sort out the problems", he is the problem, he is a feeking moron and with the comment you made it seems to me, you also must be a feeking moron

      @sandy...seems to me you struggle to "look into the crystal ball" let me spell it out....if malema starts his own party, then a bunch of "nobles" will follow him...maybe.... what will happen to the size of the ANC? then what....?
