EFF leader Julius Malema has banned investigative journalism units amaBhungane and Daily Maverick's Scorpio from attending party events.

Malema said this on Thursday during the EFF memorial service for former Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe.  Speaking to party supporters, Malema said the two publications should be treated as the enemy, much like the EFF did when it banned Gupta-owned The New Age newspaper and broadcaster ANN7.

 The ban comes after the units published an exposé on Malema, party deputy president Floyd Shivambu and Shivambu's brother Brian, as well as Malema's cousin, implicating them in the illicit flow of funds.
