Contempt of court application against Malema

2015-04-29 00:00

THE Solidarity Movement is expected to bring an application for contempt of court against Economic Freedom Fighters’ (EFF) leader Julius Malema claiming he incited students against Afrikaners.

In a statement, deputy head of Solidarity Johan Kruger said the inciteful comments were made at the

Durban University of Technology (DUT) last Friday to remove all apartheid symbols despite a prior court ruling preventing Malema from doing so.

“On April 21, the Solidarity Movement approached the court with an urgent application against the EFF after the party had encouraged its members and supporters to remove statues, including those that represent Afrikaner history and culture. The court granted the application and prohibited the EFF and its leadership to further incite any member of the public to remove, vandalise or deface statues,” said Kruger.
