The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) in the Eastern Cape says a decision will be made by August 20 on whether EFF leader Julius Malema will be prosecuted for discharging a firearm in public.

Malema was captured on camera seemingly discharging what appeared to be an automatic assault rifle at the Sisa Dukashe Stadium in Mdantsane, outside East London, at the party's 5th anniversary celebrations last year.

Lobby group AfriForum also laid criminal charges against Malema.
