Malema disappointed in Mashatile's legal action

- | 5 months ago

Speaking during a press briefing held in Johannesburg on Tuesday morning, Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema, for the first time, publically addressed the legal action recently brought against him by ANC treasurer general Paul Mashatile.

Mashatile recently filed a suit against Malema, EFF Gauteng leader Mandisa Mashego, and their party for defamation of character for calling him a thief in addition to a number of other accusations. Mashatile chronicled the comments in court papers filed by his lawyers Mncedisi Ndlovu and Sedumedi Attorneys last week.

The first instance occurred at a public May Day rally held in Alexandra by Malema’s party where, in his address, Malema listed Mashatile among those he believed to have been involved in the Alexandra Renewal Project (ARP) funding that had gone missing.
