- The man who handed Julius Malema a rifle to shoot off during his party's birthday bash is in the hot seat
- AfriForum has laid a formal charge against the man, identified as Adriaan Snyman
- Earlier, political party BLF also announced they would be laying criminal charges against Snyman
Julius Malema's shooting stunt during the EFF's birthday celebration has been a hot topic for a while.
Since a video of Malema firing off a rifle has been shared on social media, South Africa has been buzzing about it.
Malema is accused of being reckless and now the man who handed him the weapon is also in hot water.
AfriForum laid a complaint against the man - Adriaan Snyman - at the Private Security Industry Regulating Authority (PSiRA), according to a report by The Citizen.
In the complaint AfriForum wants the Snyman's actions to be investigated and the group wants to know if Snyman was violating the Firearm Control Act.
The complaint is believed to be linked to another earlier case opened against Snyman and Malema by AfriForum.
He is accused of being 'controversial' and having had previous run-ins with the law.
Snyman is getting into trouble from all sides. Briefly.co.za reported earlier that the political party BLF announced it would lay criminal charges against him for handing Julius Malema an assault rifle over the weekend.
Snyman owns a private security firm, Tactical Security Services, and offers protection to Malema.
Briefly.co.za learned that 7 years ago, Snyman had to appear in court about allegedly planning a million rand heist.
