The EFF leader Julius Malema has made a brief appearance in the Newcastle Magistrate Court where he is accused of contravening the Riotous Assembly Act.
The matter is in connection to comments made by the red beret leader back in 2014 and 2017 where he called on people to occupy land wherever they choose.
Malema is defending his remarks, saying that the calls are in line with the Freedom Charter.
He is set to be back in court in July.
