Malema ‘land grab’ case postponed

This follows an incident in June this year in which Malema allegedly urged supporters to occupy land.

Magistrate Ian Colditz provisionally postponed the matter until 5 May 2017.

Tell everyone you want the land! 1994 means nothing without the land! Victory is restoration of land into the hands of Black people.”
