Metro police deny Malema’s harassment claims

ANC's Youth Leader Julius Malema addresses supporters in Thaba Nchu, some 50 kilometres outside Bloemfontein on January 6, 2012, during a visit to mark South Africa's ruling African National Congress centenary. Africa's oldest liberation movement, which still firmly at the helm of Nelson Mandela's all-race democracy despite losing some of its shine, expects 46 heads of state for the bash marking its 100th anniversary next January 8, with 100,000 supporters set to flood into the normally placid central city of Bloemfontein.

JOHANNESBURG – Authorities are denying claims by EFF Leader Julius Malema that he was harassed by police officers on Sunday night.

Malema says he was pulled over and confronted by armed officers in an unmarked vehicle in Sandton.

He says 10 more police vehicles arrived, and officers pointed their guns at his car, forcing him out.

Johannesburg Metropolitan Police spokesman Wayne Minnaar said the officers were not in the wrong.
