Following EWN apologising after their reporter, Barry Bateman, was caught on camera calling Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader a p**s, the party has released a statement rejecting the apology and calling for “concomitant action”.

“Had it been a black journalist who would have insulted a white journalist, he would be under suspension with immediate effect,” the statement argues. The EFF says Bateman must be “dealt with the same way and not be accorded the white privilege of kid’s gloves”.

The statement begins by making it clear that the EFF “rejects the delayed lukewarm Eye Witness News apology” for the “insult issued by their journalist, Barry Bateman” against Malema.
