Mashele told the EFF's lawyer, Thabo Kwinana, that it's hilarious that a political analyst is being sued for a political opinion.

He likened it to suing a lawyer for making a legal observation.

Surely your clients must be tickled by this mirthful picture!

However, it seems the economic fighters are dead serious. Perhaps it has something to do with the upcoming elections of 2019.

Kwinana said Mashele is entitled to his opinion, but should be sure it is an informed opinion based on facts.
