Protest outside Malema court - PICS
Pretoria - Hundreds of Economic Freedom Fighters supporters protested outside the High Court in Pretoria on Monday as arguments in Julius Malema’s tax case were being heard.
The busy Madiba Street in front of the court was blocked to traffic – much to the frustration of several taxi drivers and other motorists.
The protesters, wearing red T-shirts and berets, ran up and down the street. Some waved placards reading: “We will kill for Juju” and “Zuma the thief”.
Officers from the South African Police Service and the Tshwane Metro Police were monitoring the protest.
The crowd went into a frenzy, cheering, whistling and shouting when Malema arrived at court in a Mercedes Benz Vito.
The court is hearing arguments as to whether Malema’s provisional sequestration order should be lifted or whether it should be made final.
The provisional sequestration order against Malema regarding his outstanding tax bill was postponed in March.
In February last year, the court issued a provisional sequestration order against the EFF leader for a reported R16 million in tax debt.
