DURBAN – Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader, Julius Malema, did not appear at the Newcastle Magistrate’s Court on Friday for the resumption of a common-law case of incitement and trespassing.
Instead, his legal team represented Malema and the case was again postponed.
The National Prosecuting Authority said Malema’s next appearance would be on June 25.
In June 2016, Malema told supporters in Newcastle to occupy land because it belonged to blacks; whites could not claim ownership of land, he said.
After his brief appearing at the Newcastle Magistrate’s Court in November 2016, Malema stepped outside the court and told his supporters to “occupy the land, because they have failed to give you the land”.
