Julius Malema and Adriaan Snyman

EFF leader Julius Malema and his bodyguard Adriaan Snyman are charged with the unlawful possession of a firearm and recklessly discharging it in a crowd of people. The charges came after a video emerged showing the EFF leader firing an automatic rifle at the Sisa Dukashe Stadium in 2018 during the EFF party's fifth birthday celebrations. The EFF leader faces charges of the illegal possession of firearms, contravention of the Firearms Control Act, the illegal possession of ammunition and reckless endangerment to persons or property.
