- EFF leader, Julius Malema and party spokesperson, Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, have been accused of assault following an altercation in 2018
- Juju and Ndlozi have denied the allegations, but AfriForum has now leaked video footage of the incident
- The scuffle took place at the funeral of the late Winnie Madikizela-Mandela after the EFF politicians were denied access to the graveyard
AfriForum has leaked controversial video footage of the scuffle that broke out involving EFF leader, Julius Malema and party spokesperson, Mbuyiseni Ndlozi.
While attending the funeral of the late Winnie Madikizela-Mandela last year, the two politicians were denied access to the graveyard.
Juju and Ndlozi didn't take kindly to the treatment of the police officers and a scuffle ensued.
Following this, the pair wee summoned to the Randburg Magistrate’s Court to account for their actions.
Both Malema and Ndlozi denied the claims and The South African reported that the case has been postponed to 10 March 2020.
On Wednesday, Malema was in bullish mood as he strongly denied the allegations.
Malema said, "If I laid a hand on him, I would have panel-beaten him. I don’t play when I lay a hand. I didn’t do that. Mbuyiseni didn’t do that. All we were fighting for was to enter the cemetery and go and bury our mother.”
Briefly.co.za learnt that Afriforum has become increasingly frustrated with the NPA as court proceedings have moved at snail's pace.
AfriForum CEO Kallie Kriel seemed convinced that Juju is guilty.
Kriel said, “He’s lying about his involvement in the VBS looting. He’s lying about his involvement in On Point corruption, so we are not surprised that he is denying this.”
Monghadi Mazambi (@MonghadiMazambi) questioned the toughness of the police officer:
"The policeman is a softy cry baby, unfit to defend anyone if he cries over being pushed."
Gatsheni ka Sinete (@mbongie24) added,
"It's time you take yourself seriously you @afriforum, if that's a assault then all of you white people must face crimes against humanity for being so comfortable during Apartheid."
Pieter van der Spuy (@PvdS13) showed immense faith in the lobbyist group:
"Gentleman - you should know that Afriforum hardly ever loose a court case. They will not start something if they don't believe it is worth their while - go Afriforum - vat hom flaffie."
