APPEAR: Malema

Malema, sharply dressed and looking calm, made a brief appearance at the court yesterday over his land grab calls to supporters.

He was charged on common law charges of incitement to commit a crime.

The EFF confirmed that Malema was facing a new charge, which is “incitement to commit a crime to wit: trespass in contravention of Section 1(1) read with Section 2(1) of the Trespass Act. Act 6 of 1959 as amended by the Criminal Law Amendment Act 59 of 1983”.

Malema came under fire in November last year when, following an appearance at the same court, he told his supporters to “occupy the land because they have failed to give you the land”.
