The South African National Editors’ Forum (Sanef) on Wednesday condemned social media messages sent to talk show host Karima Brown after Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema posted a screenshot showing her number.

This after she apparently accidentally posted a message on an EFF WhatsApp group, when it was meant for a journalists’ group. Sanef said: “Malema published the cellphone number of Brown and shortly thereafter his supporters began a barrage of insults against her – calling her, among other derogatory names, ‘an Indian whore and bitch’ and levelling insults, threatening her life, and accusing her of allegedly sending moles to spy on them.
