- Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan has been dragged by EFF leadership following his recent court loss
- Both Floyd Shivambu and Mbuyiseni Ndlozi revelled in their victory against their political arch-nemesis
- The court opted not to act against Julius Malema for referring to Gordhan as a 'dog of white monopoly capital' in the minister's hate speech claims
Pravin Gordhan has lost a round against the Economic Freedom Fighters and they weren't going to pass up on the opportunity to rub it in.
Briefly.co.za reported that the minister had filed hate speech charges against EFF leader Julius Malema for calling him a 'dog of white monopoly capital'.
Both deputy president Floyd Shivambu and spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi repeated their leader's sentiments on social media.
Shivambu shared a list of jabs and voiced the opinion that Gordhan should pay costs:
"The dog of white monopoly capital, Founder of the Rogue Unit, Grand Master of the CABAL, god of STRATCOM, the nepotist who’s destroying State-Owned Companies Jamnandas Gordhan was defeated and should pay cost for his frivolous application."
"Let us repeat once more: Pravin Jamnandas Gordhan is a dog of white monopoly capital."
Gordhan recently faced criticism from the Red Berets over a Eskom board member's claim that the minister was interfering with decisions made at the utility.
The political titans are also clashing over the SARS rogue unit after the EFF released a classified report.
