JOHANNESBURG - The Democratic Alliance has laid criminal charges against EFF leader, Julius Malema, and EFF member of Parliament, Nazier Paulsen.
This is over social media posts, which the DA says incite violence.
The charges were laid at the Cape Town Central police station.
Malema, this past week tweeted, 'Cowards move to the back, fighters attack'.
The post was accompanied by a picture of a machine gun.
Paulsen followed suit, posting a picture of a machine gun with the words 'Get ready'.
The DA says the EFF leadership is publicly inciting racial warfare, during a delicate time in the country.
