Malema and Ndlozi’s assault case postponed to August

Julius Malema, leader of the EFF, and Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, EFF spokesperson, are finally being prosecuted in the Randburg Magistrate’s Court for the alleged assault of an SAPS colonel following persistent pressure from AfriForum. The case was today postponed to 31 August 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however.

This follows after AfriForum announced in October 2019 that the organisation would approach the Court with a mandamus application to force the NPA to decide on the prosecution of Malema in this case as well as two other pending cases against him.

Malema and Ndlozi allegedly assaulted a policeman in uniform in 2018 during an incident that was captured on CCTV. The senior policeman laid a complaint at the police, but the case received no attention from the police until AfriForum’s Private Prosecution Unit made an enquiry into it in January 2019.
