Sanef determined to engage EFF despite 'many failed attempts'

- | 5 months ago

The South African National Editor’s Forum (Sanef) says that besides many failed attempts it remains determined to engage the EFF.

“Despite being told by Julius Malema on social media to ‘go to hell’ at the weekend while our council meeting was taking place, the Sanef Council still confirmed and reiterated the importance of trying to continue to engage with the EFF despite many failed attempts. “We believe it is critical to keep communication channels open and we will formally request a meeting,” Sanef said in a statement on Sunday.

This comes after the editor’s forum discussed several issues, including the EFF’s “banning” of amaBhungane and Daily Maverick’s investigations unit Scorpio from attending the party’s events, including press conferences during its September council sitting in Pretoria on Saturday.
