PRETORIA: AfriForum has announced that they plan to prosecute EFF leader Julius Malema on charges of fraud and corruption.
The announcement was made in Centurion on Thursday morning by AfriForum’s private prosecution head, the so-called “Pit Bull” himself, advocate Gerrie Nel.
The group’s legal team previously threatened legal action against the EFF and its leader, Malema, after he allegedly made racist remarks at a political gathering in March.

The group also announced in October 2017 that it would legally pursue Duduzane Zuma, the son of former president Jacob Zuma.
It intended to privately prosecute Zuma’s son on charges of culpable homicide, following the death of Phumzile Dube in February 2014, when Zuma’s Porsche collided with the taxi in which she had been travelling.
Although an inquest found that Duduzane’s negligence led to the crash, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) decided in August 2015 not to prosecute.
