Gerrie Nel & AfriForum plan to privately prosecute Malema for corruption

Gerrie Nel & AfriForum plan to privately prosecute Malema for corruption”

"I'm born ready! No white man will decide my destiny, the poor masses of our people will", Mr Malema tweeted after the group, Afriforum, held a news conference announcing the move against him.

"We are planning to prosecute Mr Julius Malema on charges of corruption and fraud", said AfriForum chief executive Kallie Kriel.

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) say they have been expecting the likes of AfriForum to come after them since the land expropriation without compensation vote in Parliament.

In 2015, however, Malema's corruption case was struck off the roll.

Nel said there was evidence to prove that the accused has recovered from the illness, but the case remains closed.

Nel explained that, after consultation with the NPA and expressing to them that AfriForum wanted to pursue a private prosecution of the matter, "the NPA requested that we give them until August this year for them to decide whether they will pursue the matter".

"We will make sure that he is brought to book". We can only deal with the cases once the NPA has decided not to prosecute. AfriForum will therefore according to Kriel see to it that Malema is called to account.

Malema is expected to be privately prosecuted alongside his co-accused if the National Prosecuting Authority does not put forward AfriForum's demand to reinstate the case against Malema and On-Point Engineering.

Kriel said if the NPA simply did their job without letting politics play a role, there would be no need for a private prosecution.

"Even though Malema seems to think he is untouchable, he is definitely not above the law".

AfriForum, in conjunction with AfriBusiness, is now preparing for a case of contempt of court by Malema.

In the second scenario, the PCLU - and the NPA, by extension - declines to prosecute Malema, and a nolle prosequi certificate is issued, allowing Afriforum to pursue its own private prosecution.

The other case against Malema is a charge of incitement to commit crime‚ submitted by AfriForum and to be heard in the Bloemfontein Regional Court.

Nel said it was unacceptable that the NPA, after more than 30 months, had failed to take the corruption case against Malema any further.

Former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela found in 2012 that the Limpopo government had not followed proper processes in awarding the tender to On Point Engineering.
