WATCH: Journalist to lay charges after EFF'S Shivambu assaulted him

Shivambu has come out to apologise for his actions in a statement, taking full responsibility for the altercation.

Mahlase says while Shivambu has apologised it is important that the Economic Freedom Fighters come out and condemn his actions.

He was sued when he called a journalist a drunked who was a Muslim and was obviously offended,

Mahlatse Mahlase, SANEF Chair

While he has apologised and that does lessen the blow, it is important that we hear the EFF pronounce itself on this matter. We have had meetings with the EFF as Sanef previously when they had taken the stance against ANN7 journalists.

Mahlatse Mahlase, SANEF Chair

It is important that we hear the EFF come out to basically condemn Floy Shivambu's actions.
