EFF condemns the Supreme Court of Appeals

The Economic Freedom Fighters has criticised the Supreme Court of Appeals for its latest ruling on land grabs.

EFF leader, Julius Malema asked the court for leave to appeal an earlier high court ruling that interdicted him from instigating land grabs.

The AfriForum launched the court action in 2017 after Malema encouraged his supporters to occupy land.

AfriForum stated that it was pleased as this ruling meant Malema and the red berets had exhausted all legal avenues to fight the battle.

“In January 2023, Malema and the EFF applied for leave to appeal in this case with the high court in Pretoria the application was dismissed. They then took the matter to the Constitutional Court, which dismissed their application in March 2023. Even after the highest court in South Africa, the Constitutional Court  dismissed their application for leave to appeal, they approached the Supreme Court of Appeal. Today’s definitive verdict by that court leaves Malema and the EFF with no further options for appeal,” AfriForum said.

EFF’s spokesperson, Leigh-Anne Mathys, says the ruling by the Supreme Court of Appeals will lead to violence.
