50 new charges against Malema

2012-12-02 11:04

Johannesburg - The National Prosecuting Authority has brought 50 more charges against expelled ANC Youth League president Julius Malema, it was reported on Sunday.

The City Press reported that a copy of the latest indictment against Malema revealed that he would face multiple charges of corruption, fraud, racketeering and money-laundering. The Limpopo High Court heard at Malema's appearance on Friday that a charge of racketeering had been added to an initial charge of money-laundering against him. The case was postponed to 23 April.

The City Press reported that the new charges would be added at Malema's next court appearance.

The case relates to the irregular awarding of a R52 million tender to On-Point Engineering. Malema's Ratanang Family Trust was an indirect shareholder in On-Point.

Malema reportedly told the newspaper the new charges were "politically concocted".

    ha ha ha... we kinda expected that! Now lets see how many charges are counted against Zuma... expected/anticipated is 1000% more than Malema!!

      theo.schoeman.71 - 2012-12-02 11:28

      I wonder if all the silly youth who supported him and toyi toyi'd still think that FatBoy JuJu actually cares about them? I hope they see now that he was only interested in enriching himself all along...

      rodney.bevan.58 - 2012-12-02 12:23

      If it's not "politically motivated", it's apartheids fault. He will blame it on the education he never received, he was never taught right from wrong or how to keep his filthy little paws off the taxpayers money. Sadly, he will probably get off and in 5 years time will be voted in as president. That is the way the ANC works isn't it?

      johan.jacobs.5680 - 2012-12-02 12:28

      "Easy come easy go"Finito,finish,klaar.Ma Malema "

      jannie.beirowski - 2012-12-02 13:58

      The NPA must stop this nonsence! With every charge added he becomes better qualified to serve in the goverment and one of these days he will be so qualified he will just walk into the president's chair! No nominations, no voting, just walk in as he is the best qualified person available!

      Come on now,good time to spill the beans on zooooooomer. Dont go down by yourself, take him with you.

      handy.andy.3990 - 2012-12-03 08:44

      I think Zuma has already proved that he is above the law. Nothing will come of it. The guy is an experienced thug. Also, I am pretty sure these charges against Malema are timed very well to shut him up during the conference.

      cynthia.smith.71619533 - 2012-12-03 09:01

      Now that their eyes have been opened about Malema, let's hope they see Zuma for what he is doing to this beautiful country. We have to be the worst country in the world as far as corruption goes.

      lerato.mautlane - 2012-12-03 09:32

      Now Juju has all the credentials to become the next President. He needed those extra 50 to run for presidency! bwhahaha

      tim.chemaly - 2012-12-03 10:05

      Zuma going in for the kill! With Zuma now certain to be elected the next prez of the ANC/SA he will go full out to destroy the person he hates most...Malema. Sorry Malema...you are the weakest link!

      Do hope Malema like golf because he will be released on medical grounds after being in prison for a week.

      And what about Zuma ... he has 4 years to flee. I don't think Cyril Ramaphosa is going to tolerate him from business point of view.

    Don't like Malema, but this smells of political interference

      maria.roth.589 - 2012-12-02 11:39

      How do you think he got so rich if not through political interference. Those who live by the sword will die by the sword, we can only hope the whole lot bite the dust.

      tasmee.hylkema - 2012-12-02 11:42

      you absolutely right! Normally, all the other criminals in the anc, including Zuma get away with the highest levels of fraud and corruption possible. Malema would have gotten away with it too, had he not had a falling out with the party and his protector Zuma, so now that he is out in the cold, Zuma and the powers may be are allowing the law to take its course!

      julio.sanfona - 2012-12-02 12:22

      I agree that fat boy deserves to do time for all the fraud, corruption, racketeering, money laundering, theft, nepotism and probably bad driving, but the ones who are ganging up on him are no saints either.

      BulletProof. - 2012-12-02 12:29

      @thebe, you still not convinced that's a crime to steal, may be you have also the hands in the cookie jar, is just a question of time one by one will be catch and justice will be done to and for the people of this country.

      bobby.rosewood.1 - 2012-12-02 12:55

      There was political interference before, by NOT charging him. This has now fallen away.

      raymond.dick.12 - 2012-12-02 12:56

      Actually, it smells of political NON-interference

      donald.perumal - 2012-12-02 13:03

      First look at the charges ,then the evidence: now make a judgement! Malema is in the political arena and his corruption will be used against him ,thats the nature of the game.Zuma didnt make him awards tenders to anybody,why blame him?

      maureen.churchill.9 - 2012-12-03 10:35

      I absolutely agree thebe tau, this is to take the focus of Nkandla, the secrecy bill etc etc etc Look at the big picture.

      grant.boonzaier - 2012-12-03 13:39

      You smell like a re-tard. How on earth can you make a comment that it smells like political interference? Mate are you blind to what this mischievous agent has got up to?? wake up.

      frans.visserdsb - 2012-12-04 07:48

      Thebe - I dislike Juju, and think he is a racist opportunist, but I agree. He was untouchable when he supported Zuma, now the charges are coming thick and fast.... why now? Just before Mangaung? I have no doubt he is guilty of all these things, but the fact of the matter is that it seems as if he has been targeted by the powers that be. Which I have a major problem with: 1 - Remember that Zuma got off scott-free on a few hundred charges of corruption because he proved that there was political interference in charging him? The evidence against him was just as compelling, but because of the interference he was let off. I would hate JUJU to get off on the same technicality. 2 - Using state organs to remove political opponents is a very dangerous precedent... The police and courts are supposed to be outside of politics, and if they arrest Juju today because he has become an embarrassing problem for JZ, what is to stop them from arresting Zille tomorrow on some trumped up charge because she has become a political problem?

  • GregGow1234 - 2012-12-02 11:08

    Malema was also "Politically Concocted" look was has happened since then.

      @Pierre, I disagree. The hated west will feed, like the rest of Africa. But for now, whites are rubbish and their oppinion a waste of time. Can't wait for enough blacks to eventually start some business and employment barriers are removed. There are hundreds of thousands of whites in townships who can not be employed because of racist employment laws. This will change and soon. Cant wait for this joke what we call democracy to be gone with and a better dispensation to be with us. That is the time when those who can and will create jobs will be given an opportunity

    Why not simply charge him with ONE offence that they know will stick, get him into jail and then charge him with the rest of the offences. The way that they are doing it now, even if guilty of all of the offences, he will be out on bail while the whole appeal process goes on for years.

  • bryan.culross - 2012-12-02 12:03

    I certainly believe there is political interference .... don't get me wrong ... I am sure that Malema is corrupt as the rest of the ANCancer but stronly believe that if he had not fallen out with Zipper no charges would ever have been brought against him. I am fortified by the believe that there seems to be no investigation by the Scorpios into Nkandlagate despite the obvious unlawful actions of Zipper in this regard.

      hein.huyser - 2012-12-03 08:10

    He compared his number of charges to that of Zuma. The NPA were instructed to add more so that is nearly equal to zuma.

      hein.huyser - 2012-12-03 08:46

      Sipho, JZ will win in Mangaung, but we will get him because of the "vote of no confidance" in parliament. Malema have stolen, he will pay for that. JZ have stolen, he will also pay for that. This is the danger of having Cadres deployed. You get protection till that cadre is removed. But the truth will out. Just praying for the day that you guys realize soon that we can have so much more than what the anc have promised you. There is so much more to gain from true democracy. The way they are doing things now is rotten to the core and not sustainable in the long run. The options are 1) Dictatorship - we all lose, or 2) Democracy without the anc - everyone wins
