The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) and its leader Julius Malema have made a second payment in two months of more than R100,000 to AfriForum.

That’s according to the civil rights organisation on Sunday, which said the payment was to settle two of the five cost orders that it obtained in the courts against the EFF and Malema. AfriForum said in a statement: “The payment for the past week (10 January) amounts to R108 960. The amount that AfriForum received from Malema and the EFF on 13 November 2018 was R126 703. ” The organisation says it acquired the five cost orders in five different court appearances since March 2017 in the North Gauteng High Court against Malema and his party.

AfriForum says the total amount owed to the five cost orders is about R550,000.
