Malema was charged by the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) for inciting people to occupy land.

In 2016, he reportedly told his supporters to invade unoccupied land.

The NPA denies these charges violate Malema’s right to free speech.

After his brief court appearance, Malema addressed supporters.
