Julius Malema has called on the EFF to gather at the Senekal trial where the two men accused of the murdering Brendin Horner are set to appear for the second time. The first court appearance saw the farming community gathering in numbers to get a glimpse of those accused of the brutal crime.
Tempers ran high on the day and Juju has since called on the Red Berets to show up on 16 October to protect the 'democracy'.
During a live television interview ahead of the trial, the EFF leader revealed he is not afraid should things get out of hand and he added he can defend himself.
Malema said that he might even have a black belt in karate before he showed off his karate chop. A clip of the interview has been posted on social media by Twitter user @_DJCappuccino. who captioned it:
" 'What if I have black belt, hiyaaaaa Mawashigeri' Juju #EFFinSenekal."
The video has South Africans amused and tweeps shared their views on Malema's fighting skills.
Twitter user, @BassilSabelo, commented:
"The laugh at the end of the video is the kind of laugh my parents used to discipline me for."
