On Thursday morning, lobby group AfriForum's private prosecution head advocate, Gerrie "Pit Bull" Nel, announced that it will proceed with a private prosecution of Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader, Julius Malema, on charges of fraud and corruption.

This particular prosecution relates to the On Point Engineering case in which Malema and two co-accused allegedly unlawfully secured a tender and subsequently accepted bribes to award subcontracts. Supposedly, millions of rands worth of unlawful gains were paid into Malema's Ratanang family trust.

The original case was heard in the Limpopo High Court but, in 2015, it was struck off the roll because one of the accused couldn't stand trial due to ill health.

This is not the first time Afriforum has threatened legal action against Malema and the EFF. In March they announced possible legal action after Malema's alleged racist remarks made at a political gathering.

Malema allegedly said white people should be glad that the EFF did not call for a genocide.

In a separate case, Afriforum stated back in October 2017 that it would legally pursue Duduzane Zuma, the son of former president Jacob Zuma, on charges of culpable homicide. Duduzane's Porsche collided with a taxi in February 2014, resulting in the death of Phumzile Dube.

In August 2015, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) decided not to prosecute even though an inquest found that Duduzane's negligence led to the crash.
