Malema was charged for inciting violence after he urged people to invade unoccupied land.

The firebrand leader faces similar charges in the Bloemfontein Magistrates’ court.

The EFF, in a series of tweets, said the EFF leader would make an appearance on July 4-July 5, with a new charge seemingly being added.

The new charge is: “incitement to commit a crime to wit: trespass in contravention of Section 1(1) read with Section 2(1) of the Trespass Act. Act 6 of 1959 as amended by the Criminal Law Amendment Act 59 of 1983”.

Malema’s case is expected to begin at 8am on Tuesday.
