Family trust fund: Malema breaks his

2011-07-29 00:00

ANCYL president Julius Malema in the magistrate’s court in Queenstown, Eastern Cape, for the bail hearing of a man accused of shooting his neighbour in an argument over the youth leader. In an address to the crowd outside, he broke his silence on his trust fund, saying it is a charity that funnels money to projects for ‘the poorest of the poor’. He slammed City Press for reporting on the trust and threatened to sue it, and criticised AfriForum, which has laid a charge of corruption against him for allegedly accepting kickbacks from businessmen who have received Limpopo government tenders. The poster held up behind him reads, ‘To hell with AfriForum. Hands off Malema’.
