Malema left the Vanderbijlpark Magistrates Court in the Vaal quietly yesterday.
His case was the first on the roll and after waiting for a few minutes, he was called to the dock. The case was postponed to 28 February to allow his legal team to go over the case docket. Security guards prevented photographers and journalists from entering and as soon as the case was adjourned, Juju was whisked away in a Mercedes-Benz.
Outside, EFF supporters sang party songs and held placards to show their support for Malema. Some told Daily Sun that they had been waiting to see their leader since the early hours of the morning.
Gauteng spokesman Patrick Sindane said the party would not be issuing any statements.
“No, the chief is not going to address party members, supporters or the media,” he said.
Malema appeared in court after being arrested last month for driving 215km/h in a BMW 5 Series along the N1 near Vanderbijlpark. He was charged with reckless and negligent driving and released on R5000 bail. After the incident, he issued a statement in which he apologised.
