EFF leader Julius Malema and co-accused Adriaan Snyman must appear again in January next year in the East London Magistrate's Court on charges of discharging a firearm in public.

Malema is facing five charges, including the unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition, discharging a firearm in a built-up area or public space and reckless endangerment to person or property, while Snyman faces two charges.

In 2018, Malema was captured on camera allegedly discharging what appeared to be an automatic assault rifle at the Sisa Dukashe Stadium in Mdantsane, East London, at the EFF's fifth anniversary celebrations.

He and MP Mbuyiseni Ndlozi will have to wait another month to find out their fate in a different pending case in which they are accused of assaulting a police officer.

The two politicians appeared in the Randburg Magistrate's Court on Monday where the case was postponed to 13 October for a trial date.
