Malema threatens corrupt judges
17 February 2021
Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema has accused some members of the judiciary of receiving bribes from white business interests, and he’s warned of an “uprising” if judges collude with politicians to deal with their opponents.
Malema launched his attack on the judiciary during yesterday’s debate on President Cyril Ramaphosa’s State of the Nation Address (Sona).
The EFF leader’s attack on the judiciary comes after the state capture inquiry heard evidence that the State Security Agency was involved in ‘Project Justice’ – a bid to influence the outcome of cases against former President Zuma by paying off judges.
Malema has now accused certain unnamed judges of being paid off by Ramaphosa’s African National Congress (ANC) presidential campaign funders. Malema warned that judges were not untouchable.
But acting Minister in the Presidency Khumbudzo Ntshavheni challenged Malema. He noted Malema’s new-found support for former President Jacob Zuma and said that the ANC backed Zuma too.
