On Sunday night, Julius Malema Tweeted the he was randomly stopped by police in rather intimidating fashion.

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) believe that the troop of armed policemen who stopped him were trying to intimidate him. In a statement they said:

“The EFF takes this as a clear act of intimidation and demonstration that the enemy is following our CIC Julius Malema around.”

The police vehicles were unmarked.

“The police then all came out pointing guns at his car and forced him out. The entire intersection at the Grayston Drive offramp was blocked, isolating him from the rest of the traffic,” the statement added.

“The CIC [commander-in-chief] Julius Malema got out and the police all did nothing, claiming it was a mistake. He forced his way around the police cars, driving over the pavements and drove off.”

Party spokesperson, Mbuyiseni Ndlozi believes the Malema had been followed from a meeting he attended in Soweto.
