- Julius Malema has vowed to go to the Constitutional Court to fight to ensure that Cyril Ramaphosa implements remedial action against Pravin Gordhan
- This comes after the Pretoria High Court found in favour of the Public Enterprises Minister
- EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu was even more fiery in the wake of the ruling, tweeting, "Judges are 100% united in defence of the capitalist establishment"
EFF leader Julius Malema has vowed to keep fighting to make sure Cyril Ramaphosa implements remedial action against Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan.
This comes after the Pretoria High Court found in favour of Gordhan regarding his application have the remedial orders recommended against him by Busisiwe Mkhwebane suspended.
On Monday, Malema sent out a tweet reading: "We are going to ConCourt."
Since the middle of July, the EFF has been opposing the interdict alongside Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane. Their hopes were dashed when the High Court found that Gordhan's lawyers were correct in arguing that irreparable damage would be done to the Public Enterprises Minister if the interdict was not granted. Now, the EFF says they will be appealing the interdict, Briefly.co.za has gathered.
However, several legal experts have already suggested that they do not have the necessary legal standing to do so. In any case, they will be forced to take to matter to the Constitutional Court if they wish to take it further, according to The Citizen.
EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu was even more militant than Malema following the ruling in favour of Gordhan. On Twitter, Shivambu said "Judges are 100% united in Defence of the capitalist establishment as represented by the incumbent".
While the EFF is likely to continue to use its platform to rail against the ruling and the judges who have found in favour of Gordhan, it will ultimately take more than rhetoric if they hope to win the legal battle in the Constitutional Court.
