Polokwane - Supporters attending a night vigil for Julius Malema, who is to appear in a Polokwane court on charges of fraud and money laundering, have changed the lyrics of the controversial shoot the boer to shoot Zuma, according to several twitter posts.

The embattled former ANC Youth League leader will on Wednesday be charged with alleged money laundering totalling R4.58m.

By 20:00 only a small group of young people, some wearing ANC regalia, had begun arriving at the Nirvana community hall.

Limpopo African National Congress Youth League spokesperson Klaas Mabunda earlier had told reporters that 15 000 people were expected to attend the vigil.

Ten buses were expected from each sub-region in the province.

Mabunda said the supporters would sing and dance until daybreak and would proceed from the hall to the Polokwane Magistrate's Court on Wednesday morning.

Later on Tuesday night, when supporters had arrived in substantial numbers, Malema would be called to address them, he said.

Yusuf Omar of eNCA tweeted that Malema was expected at 22:00.

On Wednesday at 08:15 Malema would hand himself over to police before his court appearance, Mabunda added.

Mabunda said Malema was expected to make speeches both before and after appearing on charges related to his Ratanang Family Trust.

Security around the Polokwane Magistrate's Court was beefed up on Tuesday and several roads are to be closed.

"Tight control will be enforced by members of the private security company at the court, as well as members of the SAPS,"  police spokesperson Hangwani Mulaudzi said in a statement.

"No lawlessness will be tolerated and those who break the law will be arrested immediately," he said, adding that dangerous weapons like firearms, knives, pangas and sticks were banned.

Mulaudzi said police were expecting "throngs and throngs of people".
