Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader – Julius Malema said on Monday that the request for him and party MP – Mbuyiseni Ndlozi to return before the Randburg Magistrates Court wasn’t necessary.
He said they were exposed to the danger of contracting coronavirus.
On Monday morning, EFF leader – Julius Malema and party MP – Mbuyiseni Ndlozi both came before the court in reference to an event that occurred far back in 2018, at the funeral of struggle icon – Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.
They received allegations for assaulting a policeman at the burial.
Malema and Ndlozi said they were struggling to seek out their way into the cemetery when the officer came over to stop them.
Malema mentioned that it had been “irresponsible” for the court to request their appearance on Monday.
“We are browsing an epidemic as a rustic and thus any court that requests us to seem without necessarily an attempt , is risking our lives,” he said.
“As public figures, once we come here tons of individuals want to interact with us and that we don’t know who is during a good state of health and who isn’t .”
However, their case has been postponed to October for an attempt date.
