“AfriForum has not won the merits – they have won technicalities.” – Julius Malema. Julius Malema, firebrand leader of the EFF (Economic Freedom Fighters), has hit out at his party’s legal team for the recent court losses to AfriForum.
Appearing on eNCA, Malema had to answer tough questions regarding his party’s legal incompetence, which has seen the EFF’s bank account take some deafening blows in recent weeks. During the interview, Malema begrudgingly admitted that civil rights group, AfriForum, had a superior legal team which managed to defeat the EFF on ‘technicalities’ but not on ‘merit’.
Julius Malema and AfriForum
The EFF, led by Malema, has endured a miserable week in court. The political provocateurs have been ordered to pay AfriForum R337 000 – or forfeit assets to the same worth. Until now, the Red Berets have only managed to scrape together less than half of that amount, paying AfriForum R126 703,59 on Tuesday.
AfriForum, by order of the court, is still owed R211 000 – this amount is expected to rise as litigative efforts between the warring groups continue. The recent serious of legal defeats have added to the mounting tension between the EFF and AfriForum.
The recent court orders relate to an interdict matter which sought to prevent Malema from calling on citizens to occupy land.
Both entities have been locked in a fierce ideological battle which has played out in the public sphere. Kallie Kriel, the CEO of AfriForum, recently praised the cost order levelled upon the EFF, saying:
“Historic victory for AfriForum! 2 cost orders granted in favour of AfriForum in one day against the EFF; Julius Malema. Cost orders show that Malema; the EFF are abusing the legal system to (unsuccessfully) frustrate AfriForum. Nobody is above the law.”
