Bloemfontein - EFF leader Julius Malema’s land grab case at the Bloemfontein Magistrate's Court has been postponed.
Malema appeared briefly at the court where the state asked for a postponement until July 27, because Malema is challenging the constitutionality of the Riotous Assemblies Act. That case is yet to be heard at the North Gauteng High Court.
The EFF leader’s charges relate to contravening the Riotous Assemblies Act in 2014 when he told his supporters at the EFF’s elective conference to occupy land.
Malema has questioned the lawfulness of the Act as it was enacted during Apartheid and was used dubiously by the Apartheid government.
When he appeared in court on Friday, Malema was greeted by a large crowd of his supporters who were dressed in the party’s red T-shirts.
