On Thursday, it was reported the EFF lost two battles in court to AfriForum- totalling five lost cases against the lobby group since March 2017.

However, Julius Malema has since responded to the AfriForum case, adding they did not win on merit.

During an interview with eNCA on Thursday night, Juju accused 'incompetent' people of being the EFF's downfall in court.

According to the EFF leader, the lawyers they used lacked professionalism which resulted in AfriForum winning the case on technicalities.

Briefly.co.za learned he pointed out the previous legal team suggested filing a notice to oppose was good enough, but they now discovered that there should have been an affidavit as well.

Malema went on to make it clear his party was not afraid of those "boers", and he even challenged them to "bring it on".

"So [AfriForum has] not won on the merits, they’ve won on technicalities of the EFF not being present. Now, we have corrected that," Malema said, adding: "Bring it on, papa, let’s go into the merits, we are not scared of these boers. They were winning in our absence."

The EFF also landed in hot water after they accused Thandeka Gqubule and Anton Harber of working as apartheid spies for Stratcom. The two renowned journalists gave Juju's party a week to proof their statements.

However, Juju said they merely quoted Mama, and that the journalist should take it up with her if they have an issue.
