Lobby group AfriForum on Friday said it would be closely monitoring the manner in which the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) handled the firearm case related to Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema.

The prosecuting authority confirmed on Thursday that it had made a decision on whether to proceed with the case against the leader of the red berets but would not announce it just yet.
