Polokwane – Julius Malema lashed out at the ANC and its leadership after his court appearance on Thursday, according to reports.

City Press reported that the Malema named Trevor Manuel, Cyril Ramaphosa and Baleka Mbete as sellouts.

And went on to accuse Ramaphosa of being a “boer spy”.

The Economic Freedom Fighters leader went on his rant after he failed to persuade the Limpopo High Court to withdraw charges of fraud, corruption, money-laundering, and racketeering against him.

He allegedly made nearly R4m from corrupt activities.

Malema accused the ANC of refusing to forgive him while they did so for those who killed ant-apartheid activists.
"Why would they go out to destroy a young man?" he told supporters after appearing in the Polokwane High Court.

"Why did they take everything from him and still protected those who killed our people? Where are the people who were hanging revolutionaries in Pretoria?"

The court ruled that the case against him would go ahead next year as scheduled, unless the National Prosecuting Authority decided to drop the charges against him.
