The assault trial of Julius Malema, Leader of the EFF, and Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, Spokesperson of the EFF, has been postponed to 9, 10 and 11 March 2021. Johannes Venter, the SAPS Colonel that was allegedly assaulted, testified during the court proceedings on 28 and 29 October 2020.

After continued pressure by AfriForum, Malema and Ndlozi are being prosecuted by the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) for the alleged assault of a SAPS colonel. The incident was caught on closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras.

“To assault a policeman in uniform is a very serious offence. Malema is also a member of parliament and must set an example for his supporters and the public. Our country already has a big problem with violence and therefore it is important that politicians have to be called to account when they make themselves guilty of this kind of behaviour,” says Monique Taute, Head of Campaigns at AfriForum.
