A warrant of arrest has been issued for firebrand EFF leader Julius Malema after he failed to appear at the East London magistrate’s court on Monday, DispatchLIVE has reported.

Malema and co-accused security official Gerhardus Adriaan Snyman were meant to appear in court in connection with charges that emanate from Malema’s alleged discharging of a firearm in public during his party’s fifth-anniversary rally in Mdantsane in 2018.

The warrant for both accused will, however, not be effected until their next court appearance on May 8.
