Malema denied permission to picket in coffin assault case

The Steve Tshwete municipality in Mpumalanga has not granted permission to EFF Commander-in-Chief Julius Malema to picket outside court, a spokeswoman has said.

Steve Tshwete local municipality spokeswoman Prudence Magutle said permission to protest has not been granted to Malema because they didn’t submit their completed forms by 4pm when the municipality closed.

She said the DA has also applied to picket but was also not granted the permission because they didn’t receive their forms as well before they closed.

“Only the ANCYL has been granted permission to picket, the others have not been granted,” she said on late Tuesday.
