Journalists kicked out of Malema trial
Journalists, photographers and television camera crews were kicked out of the Polokwane Regional Court where expelled ANC Youth League president Julius Malema was appearing.
Earlier, certain media houses made applications to be allowed into the court, but reporters were removed after officials insisted that the applications were for individuals and not crews.
However, according to a Sapa reporter on the scene, no journalists remained in the court.
Pandemonium broke out when the journalists were forcibly removed. One was dragged out by two security guards.
eNews Channel Africa reporter Karyn Maughan collapsed outside the court.
Riot police were deployed inside the court to keep order.
