Malema case postponed
Former ANCYL leader Julius Malema’s case has been postponed to June.
PRETORIA - The case against former ANC Youth League President Julius Malema has been postponed in the Polokwane Magistrates Court.
Malema and his co-accused were arrested last September on charges of corruption, fraud and money laundering.
The former youth league leader faces a R16-million tax debt and has had all his assets attached.
His half-built Sandton home will be auctioned off on 9 May.
Only a handful of Malema supporters have turned up in stark contrast to the thousands who had police on high alert at his first appearance in 2012.
And unlike that occasion, Malema did not address them after being in the dock.
The matter has been postponed until June while prosecutors try to obtain an available spot in the North Gauteng High Court for trial.
The state alleges millions of rands were paid into Malema's Ratanang Family Trust as kickbacks for tenders awarded on Limpopo road projects.
