The Economic Freedom Fighters and its leader Julius Malema have won their defence of a case brought against by the SA National Editors’ Forum (Sanef) and journalists Ranjeni Munusamy, Pauli Van Wyk, Adriaan Basson, Max Du Preez and Barry Bateman.

The journalists had approached the Equality Court to declare the EFF’s call on them to be regarded as enemies of the revolution and defenders of President Cyril Ramaphosa hate speech. They had approached the court in an attempt to interdict the EFF from intimidating journalists, publishing personal information of the journalists, expressly or tacitly endorsing the intimidation of journalists and also for the party and Malema to pay costs in the matter.

In its ruling on Thursday, the Equality Court in Pretoria dismissed the application and no order of costs was made.
