Johannesburg - The Cape Town High Court this week instructed a sheriff to attach property belonging to the ANC Youth League and its former president Julius Malema over unpaid legal fees, the Sunday Times reported.

This was to recover more than R100 000 in legal fees racked up in a battle with Western Cape Premier Helen Zille.

Malema and former ANCYL members had described Zille's all-male executive as a group of racist "garden boys" who were her boyfriends and concubines.

Zille went to court to compel Malema, former league spokesperson Floyd Shivambu and executive committee member Andile Lili to retract their statements.

She dropped the R1.2m lawsuit against them and the league last year after reaching a settlement in which all, except Lili, agreed to apologise and pay Zille's legal costs.

The debt was never paid, according to the newspaper.

The sheriff was to attach league property to recover R93 218, and R18 223 from Malema.

ANCYL spokesperson Magasela Mzobe said he was aware of the warrant to attach the assets.

"We are restructuring and issues of debt and any pending court matters will be addressed in that meeting."

Malema's partially built Sandown mansion was sold last week for R5.9m in an auction held to recoup R16m owed to the SA Revenue Service in taxes.
