Malema’s Newcastle ‘land grab’ case postponed again

The Newcastle ‘land grab’ case against EFF leader Julius Malema has been postponed.

Malema’s lawyers made a brief appearance in the Newcastle Magistrate’s Court, where the matter was postponed to September 9.

The firebrand leader has been charged with contravening the Riotous Assemblies Act and the Trespass Act in both Bloemfontein and Newcastle for utterances he made during EFF rallies in 2014 and 2016 respectively.

Malema’s attempt to have the Act declared unlawful has led to several postponements in both his Bloemfontein and Newcastle cases.

 

Police Minister to visit families of victims who were shot and killed in Cape Town

Police Minister Bheki Cele arrived at Philippi East police station in Cape Town to address policing issues after several shooting incidents in the area, which has claimed 11 lives since Friday.

On Friday night at around 11pm, police were alerted to the discovery of six bodies of women between the ages of 18 and 26 at a home in Marcus Garvey.

On Saturday night, in two separate shooting incidents, five men aged between 18 and 39 were shot dead and another was wounded. 

 

ICC convicts Congo's Ntaganda of war crimes

Judges at the International Criminal Court have convicted Bosco Ntaganda, a former Congolese military leader, on charges of atrocities including murder, rape and conscripting child soldiers.

The 45-year-old was convicted for acts committed while he was military operations chief at the Union of Congolese Patriots militia in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo in 2002 and 2003.

Ntaganda's conviction is a rare success for prosecutors at the ICC, an international court set up in 2002 to prosecute war crimes and crimes against humanity when its member states are unable or unwilling to do so.
