Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema has been receiving divided criticism on his legal representation in court on his assault allegation charge between him, fellow party senior member Dr Ndlozi and police official Colonel Venter.
Critics say that Malema is confused on his stands on black excellence and black legal professionals.
Malema said during his address after a court appearance that no one will dictate to him who he should choose to represent him in court, he will choose any lawyer or Advocate he chooses.
He also added that Lawrence Hodes has been representing him in many cases in court for many years and there is nothing wrong with it.
He said that he cannot be held at ransom to use black lawyers to show his loyalty on black excellence even when it is incompetent.
