AfriForum to privately prosecute Malema for fraud and corruption

Lobby group AfriForum on Thursday announced its intention to prosecute Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema if the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) did not reinstate the case against Malema for fraud and tender corruption in the On-Point Engineering matter. On-Point, in which AfriForum says Malema’s family trust has a vested interest, was appointed in 2009 by the Limpopo Department of Roads and Transport to assist with infrastructure development, maintenance and planning and, while carrying out these functions, received bribes from successful tenderers.
