Gordhan charges Malema
PUBLIC Enterprise Minister Pravin Gordhan laid criminal charges against EFF leader Julius Malema and the party’s deputy president, Floyd Shivambu.
The charges followed comments the pair made while protesting outside Zondo Commission hearings into state capture in Johannesburg.
Gordhan said he would file a case against the two at the Equality Court.
“Extending these attacks to my family and threatening harmony amongst the people of South Africa was a step too far. Enough is enough,” Gordhan said.
He is seeking an unconditional apology and damages which “will be donated to an organisation that supports job creation for unemployed youth.
“It is time for all South Africans to take a firm stand against racism, lies and fake news and contribute to the building of a united, non-racial and non-sexist democratic South Africa. All of us must fight corruption,” he said. |
