- The radio DJ that called Julius Malema a monkey on air, Sasha Martinengo, has been axed from his job as a result
- The Economic Freedom Fighters applauded the radiostation, Hot91.9 FM for taking action against Martinengo
- However, the EFF will be taking matters further and will open a criminal case against the ex-DJ
The well-known Hot91.9 FM DJ Sasha Martinengo was axed after he referred to EFF leader Julius Malema as a monkey but that's not enough for the party.
The EFF's Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said they welcome the firing of Martinengo but they will be taking things further, according to a report by The South African.
The political party will be opening a criminal case against Martinengo because they feel that racists belong behind bars.
Briefly.co.za earlier reported on the incident when Martinengo said "people still listened to this monkey" on air during the breakfast show on Tuesday morning. The station's manager, Lloyd Madurai confirmed that the DJ was fired.
