ANCYL leader in Limpopo, Boy Mamabolo, was shot and wounded in a night club on Sunday evening, Capricorn FM reported on Monday.

Mamabolo and three friends were allegedly at a night club in Polokwane when the shooting happened.

Mamabolo was recovering in hospital, the Limpopo-based radio station reported, quoting eye witnesses.

Several other people were injured.

Limpopo police were not immediately reachable to confirm the report.

Mamabolo is a former friend of ex-African National Congress Youth League leader Julius Malema, now the leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters.

Mamabolo is facing 72 fraud charges related to his chairmanship of the Limpopo Geograhical Names Committee.

He was also embroiled in a court battle with Malema last year after he allegedly sent a threatening text message to Malema. He allegedly wrote in the SMS he would exhume Malema's mother's body and take her remains to Malema's grandmother's home in Seshego.

This was apparently in retaliation for Malema allegedly sending his allies to seduce Mamabolo's girlfriend.

But the crimen injuria case against Mambolo was provisionally struck off the court roll last year.
