The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) says it will not remove statements from all their media platforms nor apologize to former Finance Minister Trevor Manuel – despite a South Gauteng High Court ruling to this effect in Johannesburg.

The Court ruled that the EFF have to pay R500 000 in damages to Manuel over a defamatory tweet published in March. The court found comments made by the EFF about Manuel were “defamatory and false”.
