AfriForum to prosecute Malema for police threats

The community of Coligny in the North West has called for the re-investigation of the death of 15-year-old Matlhomola Mosweu in 2017, in order for the family to get closure. The two men accused and earlier convicted of the killing have now been released after the Supreme Court of Appeal overturned the judgment of the High Court in the North West. Pieter Doorewaard and Phillip Schutte were sentenced to 23 years and 18 years behind bars respectively. Lobby group AfriForum appealed the conviction, arguing that the state's sole witness lied under oath. Meanwhile, EFF leader Julius Malema says if the National Prosecuting Authority will not appeal the judgment of the Supreme Court of Appeal, then his party will appeal the matter privately
