Malema, who coined the ‘pay back the money’ war chant during former president Jacob Zuma’s dubious tenure, has eventually obeyed a 2017 court order.
Julius Malema, firebrand leader of the EFF (Economic Freedom Fighters), has tasted the bitterness of his own medicine after being forced to pay back money to AfriForum.
Malema, who coined the ‘Pay back the money’ war chant during former president Jacob Zuma’s dubious tenure, has eventually obeyed a court order pertaining to a case last year. Civil rights group, AfriForum, received the money via Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) on Tuesday.
Julius Malema versus AfriForum
The ongoing ideological war between Malema and AfriForum, which is playing out in the public eye, shows no signs of abating. Both parties find themselves on opposite sides of the political spectrum, disagreeing on almost every current topic under consideration in an increasingly divided South African society.
Whether it be land expropriation without compensation or minority rights, Malema, backed by his EFF brigade, and AfriForum, supported largely by the Afrikaner community, do not see eye-to-eye. The most recent development concerning this battle – the successful punitive cost order against Malema – will be seen as a victory for AfriForum.
This was demonstrated by AfriForum’s CEO, Kallie Kriel, who took to Twitter to announce that the payment from Malema had eventually been made. Adding insult to injury, Kriel provided evidence of the EFT, which amounted to R126 703,59.
Punitive cost order against Malema
On 12 September 2017, a judge awarded a punitive cost order against Malema and the EFF in favour of AfriForum. This was in relation to a lawsuit spearheaded by AfriForum which sought to obtain an interdict, against the red berets and their leader, which would prevent them from inciting people to enter land illegally.
As previously reported by The Citizen, Kriel elaborated on the court case and subsequent cost order, saying:
“On March 7 2017, the North Gauteng High Court (in Pretoria) ruled in AfriForum’s favour and granted the interdict, upon which Malema and the EFF applied for the interdict to be set aside. This application was scheduled to be heard on September 12 2017, but the court had to postpone the case after the heads of argument of Malema and the EFF were filed late. The judge, therefore, issued a punitive cost order against Malema and the EFF.”
