- | 5 months ago

Speaking at a memorial event for the late former Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe, Economic Freedom Fighters Commander-in-Chief Julius Malema declared that online publication Daily Maverick, their investigative unit Scorpio and independent investigative journalism unit amaBhungane would no longer be allowed to cover EFF events or briefings.

At the memorial in Orlando East, Soweto, Malema said Daily Maverick, amaBhungane and Scorpio would be treated in the same manner ANN7 was treated – as an enemy. The EFF leader alleged that the publications exist “to pursue the interest of Pravin Gordhan” and said he has instructed his party not to answer any questions from them.

He called for calm amid ongoing xenophobic violence, claiming that those calling Zimbabweans “foreigners” will one day work for them.
