Manuel, EFF expected back in court in R500 000 defamation case

- | 4 months ago

After a week-long postponement, lawyers for Trevor Manuel and the Economic Freedom Fighters will meet in the High Court in Johannesburg on Tuesday for the start of Manuel's R500 000 defamation case against the red berets.

 Manuel approached the court in mid-April after the EFF refused to retract a statement accusing him of nepotism in the process that led to the appointment of Edward Kieswetter as the new commissioner of the SA Revenue Service. The respondents are listed as the EFF, its leader Julius Malema and its spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi.
