Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader – Julius Malema said on Monday that the request for him and party MP – Mbuyiseni Ndlozi to come before the Randburg Magistrates Court wasn’t necessary.

He said they were exposed to the risk of contracting coronavirus.

On Monday morning, EFF leader – Julius Malema and party MP – Mbuyiseni Ndlozi both came before the court in relation to an incident that occurred far back in 2018, at the funeral of struggle icon – Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.

They received allegations for assaulting a police officer at the burial.

Malema and Ndlozi said they were struggling to find their way into the cemetery when the officer came around to prevent them.

Malema mentioned that it was “irresponsible” for the court to request their appearance on Monday.

We are going through a pandemic as a country and therefore any court that requests us to appear without necessarily a trial, is risking our lives,” he said.

As public figures, when we come here a lot of people want to interact with us and we don’t know who is in a good state of health and who is not.”

However, their case has been postponed to October for a trial date.
