The court ordered on Thursday that the red berets must, within 24 hours, remove the statements about Manuel from all the party’s media platforms and that it should apologise to him.

The respondents, the party as the first, EFF spokesperson Dr Mbuyiseni Ndlozi as second, and Malema as the third respondent, were interdicted by the court “from publishing any statement that says or implies that Manuel “is engaged in corruption and nepotism in the selection of the Commissioner of the South African Revenue Service”. “The respondents are ordered jointly and severally to pay damages of R500,000 to the applicant (Manuel),” the judgment reads.

Manuel indicated that, should the damages be awarded to him, he would donate the R500,000 to charity.
