South Africa issues arrest warrant for Malema
Text size Aa Aa

South African authorities have issued an arrest warrant for former ANC Youth League President Julius Malema.

One of President Jacob Zuma’s most vocal critics, he was expelled from the ruling African National Congress in April for lack of discipline.

He is expected to appear in court next week on charges of money laundering, corruption and fraud, in a case that revolves around government contracts awarded in his native Limpopo region.

Malema said this week that he would appear in court if charged.

The 31-year-old has also been a key backer of the miner’s strikes which are currently shaking the world’s top platinum producer and he recently unnerved investors when he called for nationalisation of the mines.
