The EFF has announced that they will oppose SANEF’s application to the Equality Court, which seeks to prevent the party from threatening journalists.
Taking to Twitter Julius Malema made it clear that those who were waiting for an apology from him, would be waiting forever.
Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, the spokesperson for the EFF, condemned the move dubbing it an attempt to silence the truth and prevent the party from challenging media and it’s journalists.
Ndlozi went on to accuse SANEF of launching an attempt to suppress criticism of the media. He maintained that no member of the party had ever called for violence with the media or it’s journalists.
He also reiterated that the EFF would not be intimidated and will speak the truth, even if it led to imprisonment.
Briefly.co.za reported yesterday that SANEF is approaching the court under the banner of protecting the freedom of the media and seeking security for journalists against the threats and intimidation tactics the party’s leaders and supporters have been hurling at them.
