EFF leader Julius Malema’s application to declare the Riotous Assemblies Act unconstitutional has been dismissed by the High Court in Pretoria.
Malema challenged the constitutionality of the Act, saying the State was using apartheid-era legislation to prosecute him.
The charges relate to two incidents back in 2014 and 2016 in which the EFF leader allegedly incited party members to invade unoccupied land.
It was in 2014 when Malema told supporters in Bloemfontein to seize unoccupied land. In 2016, he repeated the call in Newcastle.
A case was brought against Malema by lobby group AfriForum.
