Malema back in court in November
The state has two months to prepare for its case against Julius Malema.
POLOKWANE - The state has two months to get its ducks in a row before axed ANC Youth League (ANCYL) leader Julius Malema and his five co-accused appear in court again at the end of November.
Malema was released on R10,000 bail in the Polokwane Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.
He is among six people arrested in connection with tender fraud in Limpopo.
Malema's legal team yesterday complained to the court that they had not yet received a charge sheet from the state and were still unclear about the details of the charges their client faces.
Advocate Andre Bezuidenhout said Malema was ready for the case to start.
The former youth leader faces 16 counts of money laundering, totalling nearly R5 million, for cash paid into his Ratanang Family Trust - which the state claims is proceeds of crime.
Meanwhile, the Hawks said it is still investigating and may still turn up some of the former youth league's ill-gotten gains.
