Malema’s case was postponed to 29 January.

Unlike his charming self, Julius Malema dodged the prying eyes of the media contingent waiting to snap his images twice in his speeding scandal.

Usually he’s not one to shy away from controversy and the snapping sounds of photographers, Malema changed his tactics this week.

First, the EFF leader managed to find a way out of The Barrage police station where he was held following his arrest on Thursday evening for driving 215kph in the Vaal, south of Joburg yesterday evening without the press noticing his cheeky exit in a police car.

Then on Friday morning at the Vanderbijlpark Magistrate’s Court, Malema quickly ran into the back of the court where dashed off in the same BMW 5 series luxury sedan following his brief appearance.

The EFF Commander in Chief is out on 5 000 bail after he was charged with reckless and negligent driving after he was caught on the N1 for speeding.

Following his arrest, Malema was held at The Barrage police station but on Thursday midnight his case was transferred to Vanderbijlpark where he appeared in court. Several photographers awaited Malema’s emergence from The Barrage police station but were disappointed to learn that he had ducked their zooming lenses and stand-by flashes. Gauteng EFF spokesperson Patrick Sindane refused to comment on the matter and told Drum:  “We’re not going to comment.” Gauteng Traffic spokesperson Busaphi Nxumalo said Malema was arrested for driving 215km/h in a 120km/h zone at around 18:42 on Thursday.
