AFRIFO­RUM says it has laid a charge of con­tempt of court against EFF leader Julius Malema over land oc­cu­pa­tions, “to teach him a les­son”.

Next week, the two par­ties are set to ap­pear be­fore the North Gaut­eng

High Court as the lobby group con­tin­ues with its bid to en­sure that Malema does not advocate for South Africans to in­vade pri­vate land. This comes as the or­gan­i­sa­tion se­cured a war­rant to seize Malema’s mov­able as­sets last week.

Kriel said they wanted to teach the EFF lead­er­ship a les­son. | Min­is­ter Michael Ma­sutha signed the treaty, rais­ing hopes the Gup­tas would be ex­tra­dited.

On Wed­nes­day, the depart­ment ap­peared be­fore Par­lia­ment’s port­fo­lio com­mit­tee on jus­tice and cor­rec­tional ser­vices, where it pre­sented the agree­ment. DA MP Steven Swart said there had been no po­lit­i­cal will from the pre­vi­ous ad­min­is­tra­tion to sign the agree­ment.
