Pretoria - Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema briefly appeared in the Bloemfontein Magistrate's Court on Friday for allegedly contravening the Riotous Assemblies Act.
The State acceded to a request by Malema's counsel that the matter be postponed to November 8 to allow the high court in Pretoria sufficient time to deal with a challenge to the validity of the Act.
Malema filed an application in the high court in December challenging the constitutionality of the laws used to charge him.
He argued that the law in question was apartheid era legislation and should be declared invalid.
Judgment was reserved.
