Malema’s calls for “land grabs” got him in trouble


JOHANNESBURG – EFF leader Julius Malema will appear in the North Gauteng high court on Wednesday for his comments on land grabs.

Malema is expected to answer to charges for contravening the Riotous Assemblies Act.

Malema was charged by the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) for inciting people to occupy land.

In 2016, he reportedly told his supporters to invade unoccupied land.

The NPA denies these charges violate Malema’s right to free speech.
