"Let them come and like @eNCA announce their "principled decision" to boycot our movement. It's time to deal with @SAEditorsForum in the manner that they are... A self appointes groupie which is overtly political and anti EFF. They are not media practitioners."

Previously, Briefly.co.za reported that Malema had told the eNCA to 'voetsek'. Malema declared that he and the entire EFF are officially cutting ties with a South African media house and all their journalists and will no longer be willing to speak to them.

In his tweet, Malema wrote that he and other EFF members will not be taking interviews with the eNCA. His mini-rant comes after eNCA journalist Lindsay Dentlinger was accused of acting racist after requesting black politicians wear facemasks while being interviewed but did not request the same from black politicians.

"No journalists Male/Female from eNCA will interview any of the EFF activists anywhere globally; you can all jump anyhow you want. VOTSEK!!!," he wrote in the tweet.
