Julius Malema’s fraud and corruption case, which dates back to 2012, was thrown out of court on Tuesday, after the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) sought another postponement. In case you missed it, here are five tweets that sum up Malema’s day in court.
Malema was unfazed when he headed to court this morning.

It all ended just as he expected – legally, there was only one thing the judge could do once the NPA asked for another postponement:
#MalemaTrial struck from the roll. Did we really expect a different result? Remember, the charges can always be reinstated. Not acquitted.

Malema played it just as cool as he headed out of court.
#MalemaTrial Malema: I said to my wife, you don’t have to accompany me to court, we are not celebrities we are politicians

If anyone thought this trial would have Malema tied up and out of politics, they had another thing coming.
Now he’s unstoppable. Red tsunami.

Looks like he’ll be back to antagonise the Speaker for the House again next time Parliament sits.
