Malema blasts police after speeding, denies call for the killing of whites

EFF leader Julius Malema appeared in the Bloemfontein Magistrate's Court on Monday charged with contravening the 1956 Riotous Assemblies Act. This after he made public calls on two occasions for people to invade vacant land.

His driver was stopped by police on the way to court and arrested for speeding. EWN's Clement Manyathela says there are reports that the car was driving at high speed, but Malema believes he was the target.

Malema's legal team believes the act created under apartheid is unconstitutional and can no longer be applicable.

His case has been postponed to June 5, 2017.

Malema took the opportunity to address a crowd of supporters in Bloemfontein after court proceedings. He said he did not call for the slaughter of white people, but cannot guarantee what will happen in the future.

Malema said that if he ever becomes president, he will ensure former president FW de Klerk would be imprisoned for apartheid crimes.
