AfriForum has confirmed that it’s obtained a warrant to seize movable assets belonging to Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema to recover thousands of rands in legal fees.

The lobby group says the warrant received from the North Gauteng High Court will be given to the sheriff to identify and auction off assets owned by Malema.

In 2017, the group challenged the EFF head in court for what they say was inciting people to grab land. The High Court ruled in favour of AfriForum in March, but the group says since then Malema has failed to pay the outstanding legal fees.
