- AfriForum may have to try and have the Economic Freedom Fighters and Julius Malema declared bankrupt
- The activist group says they are owed R400 000, and they will do what's necessary to get it
- The EFF already paid an amount of R126 000 to AfriForum on a court case they lost
AfriForum might try to have Julius Malema declared bankrupt, along with the EFF. The civil rights group want the money that they are owed, and it seems they will do whatever it takes to get it.
The EFF and Malema owe AfriForum quite a substantial amount of money, about R400 000.
The Citizen reported that two judged granted two separate cost orders against the political party and its leader on the 14th of November.
AfriForum's application to have Malema jailed for 6 months and given a fine of R500 000 was scrapped from the court roll.
In the meantime, the EFF tried to resist the group's attempt to have their assets sold to retrieve the money owed to them. The court, however, did not grant the EFF their wish. In fact, the EFF was given further costs.
Briefly.co.za reported that the EFF made a payment of R126,703.59 to AfriForum, but still owe them R337 758 on another court case.
The cost orders have driven the amount that EFF owe up to more than R400 000, and AfriForum wants their money.
They're willing to have the EFF and Malema declared bankrupt and have their assets auctioned to get their money.
