eNCA journalist Karima Brown has won her legal battle against the EFF, with the high court ruling in her favour this morning.
According to The Citizen, Brown had claimed to have recieved threats of rape, sexual assault and violence after her contact detailed were tweeted by Malema:
“I was called a ‘whore’ and told people will deal with me. That I must leave the country and ‘f**k off back to India."
The court has ruled that the party contravened the Electoral Code, determining that they should pay costs for the case.
Brown had filed her case against the EFF before the elections, aiming to have the court declare Malema to have breached the electoral code and it appears as if she has succeeded.
