Expelled ANC Youth Leader Told to Pay $1.9 Million Over Tax

Julius Malema, expelled as a youth leader from South Africa’s ruling African National Congress, was ordered to pay about 16 million rand ($1.9 million) by a court this month, according to the country’s revenue service.

“There has been a judgment at the tax court to the value of 16 million rand,” Marika Muller, a spokeswoman in Pretoria at the South African Revenue Service, said today by phone.

The police service’s Hawks anti-corruption unit issued a warrant for Malema’s arrest, his lawyer Nicqui Galaktiou of Brian Kahn Attorneys in Johannesburg said in an interview on Sept. 21. “We still do not have confirmation of the charges,” Galaktiou said today in a mobile-phone text message.

Malema, 31, was expelled from the ANC in March for sowing divisions in the party and damaging its reputation. Since then he has lobbied for the ousting of South African President Jacob Zuma from his position in the ruling party. The ANC will hold a conference with elections in December. Malema criticized Zuma and the ANC after mining strikes that led to violence in the past month, while also calling for more walkouts and nationalization.

“We are arranging with the National Prosecuting Authority for Mr Malema to appear in court” in Polokwane next week, Galaktiou said Sept. 21. Malema will appear in the regional court on Sept. 26, the Johannesburg-based City Press newspaper reported today, without saying where it got the information.
