EFF leader Julius Malema’s case for contravening the Riotus Assemblies Act of 1956 has been postponed to November 8, 2019, to allow the High Court in Pretoria sufficient time to deal with and finalize the Riotous Assemblies Act matter.

Malema is challenging the act as the apartheid era legislation. He’s also facing a charge of encouraging his party members to occupy vacant land during its elective conference in 2014 in Bloemfontein.
