Durban – Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema's lawyers will represent him in the Newcastle Magistrate’s Court on Monday in his so-called land grab case.
Malema, however, will not put in an appearance himself, according to EFF KwaZulu-Natal provincial chairman and MPL Vusi Khoza.
“The commander-in-chief will not be appearing in person; only the lawyers will be appearing,” Khoza told African News Agency (ANA) on Sunday.
He said it was anticipated that the matter would be a “straightforward postponement”, as Malema’s legal team was still in the process of challenging the constitutionality of the Riotous Assemblies Act.
Malema was charged with contravening the Act for utterances he made in Bloemfontein in 2014 and in Newcastle in 2016. He was also charged for contravention of the Trespass Act.
