BLF claims it is going broke as legal fees are eating into its finances amid court battles. The party also says it has no money for legal presentation anymore.

They appeared in South Africa's Equity Court over a matter between them and a complainant who was represented by the South African Human Rights Commission on a case of hate speech.

As reported by EWN, the BLF feels the Human Rights Commission is being biased by giving the complainant legal assistance.

BLF's legal woes don't end there, as they will be taken to court by the DA as well. Briefly.co.za reported earlier that the DA will be reporting Andile Mngxitama to the Human Rights Court and the Equality Court.

The North West provincial leader Joe McGluwa will be pressing charges against the BLF leader for incitement of imminent violence after his extremely racist remarks.

BLF says they are only taken to court by opportunists who want to bankrupt them.

The party's Deputy President says opposition parties want to destroy them through legal fees.

It is a lot of money to pay for legal representation in this country. We already have an overwhelming amount of legal costs from racists, including AfriForum, who want to see our movement destroyed and punished through legal costs.
