The EFF and its spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi didn't place any evidence before the court that veteran journalists Thandeka Gqubule and Anton Harber were "Stratcom" agents, the Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg found on Friday.

Judge Lebogang Modiba found Ndlozi and the EFF's labelling of Gqubule and Harber as Stratcom agents in a press release to be unlawful. She ordered Ndlozi and the EFF to, within 24 hours of the granting of the order, remove the statements from all their media platforms, including their website and Ndlozi's Twitter account, and to publish a notice on platforms where the statements had been published in which they unconditionally retract and apologise.

They were interdicted from publishing any statements that say or imply that the journalists worked for or collaborated with the apartheid government.
