- | 3 months ago

National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) spokesperson in the Eastern Cape Luxolo Tyali said an investigation into the alleged discharging of a firearm in public by Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema had been completed, and that a decision on whether or not he would be prosecuted by the NPA would be made by this coming Tuesday.

“The investigation regarding the case of discharging a firearm in public by Mr Malema is completed and a decision will be made on the matter by 20 August 2019,” Tyali told News24. The Gauteng NPA has said they would decide “in due course” on whether or not Malema would face renewed corruption charges over his alleged role in 2012 On-Point Engineering scandal, involving Limpopo government tenders.

Malema initially faced charges related to Limpopo government tenders, after a R52 million contract was awarded to the company On-Point Engineering in 2012.
