JOHANNESBURG - Expelled ANC Youth League (ANCYL) leader and fraud accused Julius Malema has been given a few more days and another opportunity to fully disclose all his assets to curators.

An urgent application to have Malema declared in contempt of court was scheduled to be heard in the North Gauteng High Court on Tuesday morning.

Malema, who is facing a R16 million tax bill, had his Limpopo farm and other property seized in March.

Eyewitness News understands last minute negotiations between curators and Malema's legal representatives kept the application out of court.

The Sechaba Trust's Cloete Murray and the Tshwane Trust Company's Aviwe Ndyamara were appointed curators of Malema's estate and tasked with ensuring he declare all his assets.

Murray and Ndyamara were scheduled to bring the application before the Pretoria court because the embattled former politician allegedly failed to cooperate with them.

But Malema was given a few more days to fully and accurately disclose all his assets.

The curators were appointed by the court.

If Malema fails to declare his assets, the matter will be placed back on the court roll.

Furthermore, Malema could face a R500,000 fine or time in jail if he is found guilty of contempt.
