However, as Briefly.co.za reported earlier, the Black First Land First party argued the one who is actually guilty of a crime is not Juju, but the white security guard who handed him the gun.

On Thursday IOL reported the 'white man' who gave Malema the weapon is Adriaan Snyman- who has been the EFF leader's bodyguard since 2011.

Snyman owns his own security company, Tactical Security Services, which provides clients with highly trained individuals as guards. According to the company's website, they employ former military and ex-cops.

Snyman has been watching Juju's back for seven years now and he was even seen with the EFF leader at the Equality Court after AfriForum Youth wanted to prosecute him over the "kill the boer, kill the farmer" song he sang.

Snyman reportedly started up the company a decade ago in Durban. According to the website, the motivation behind the Tactical Security Services was because of the dramatic increase in crime in SA.
