Julius Malema's assets have reportedly been attached by a sheriff of the court for failing to pay R16-million in taxes.
The Sunday Independent says assets have been seized at Malema's homes in Flora Park, Polokwane and his Sandown home in Johannesburg.
It is not clear whether the seized assets included things like cars and household content, but the attachment process enables the sheriff to value assets and prevent Malema from selling them.
The newspaper reports that the South African Revenue Service (Sars) obtained a court judgment against Malema for being in arrears with his taxes amounting to millions of rands.
In September, Limpopo businessman Lesiba Gwangwa, who is a close Malema ally, had his assets seized due to unpaid taxes.
Meanwhile, Malema is due back in court in November after being charged with corruption alongside four others, including Gwangwa.
Malema denies any wrongdoing.
He believes the charges against him are politically motivated as he has been critical of President Jacob Zuma.
Malema wants Zuma replaced as ANC president in December.
Malema is no longer an ANC member after he was expelled from the party in April.
