Vanderbiljlpark - Politician Julius Malema's supporters were singing and dancing on Wednesday ahead of his appearance on a traffic violation in the Vanderbijlpark Regional Court.

Economic Freedom Fighters wearing red berets and T-shirts danced in front of the gate with posters of Malema, leader of the party.

Malema was due to appear for reckless or negligent driving.

He was arrested in December for allegedly driving at 215km/h in a 120km/h zone.

The media was barred from entering the court by security guards. They claimed they were given orders not to allow media inside. - Sapa
