Julius Malema and Steve Hofmeyer have been arrested for speeding

Both the Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema and Afrikaans singer Steve Hofmeyer have been arrested for speeding, Gauteng traffic police say.

Malema was arrested by the high speed unit in the Vaal on the N1 driving 215km/h in a 120km/h zone, while Hofmeyer was arrested in the Bronkhorstspruit area for travelling 169km/h in a 80km/h zone.

Both have been charged with reckless and negligent driving and for exceeding the general speed limit, spokeswoman Busaphi Nxumalo said.

Hofmeyer was released on R500 bail and will appear  in the Bronkhorstspruit Magistrate's Court on Monday morning.

According to Eye Witness News, Malema was released on R5000 bail in the early hours of this morning. He is expected in court today.

At 11.15pm Hofmeyr took to social media website Twitter to say in Afrikaans: "Hier is plek vir net een tronkvoël n hierdie tronksel, Julius. Skuif op vetgat. (There is only place for one jailbird in this cell, Julius. Move over fat ass)."
