Journalist and host of The Karima Brown Show on 702, Brown has laid a charge of intimidation against a member of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF).
Brown says she received a threatening sms from the EFF member, stating that she and other journalists including Pauli Van Wyk and Ranjeni Munusamy, are enemies of the party.
Brown says she has opened a case of incitement to violence, intimidation and fear.
This is not the first time I have had a run in with the EFF around threats. When Julius Malema and Floyd Shivambu were still members of the ANC Youth League, they threatened to look into the accounts of journalists.Karima Brown, journalist
What we have been seeing, together with the BLF, is that the EFF has just been ratcheting up hate speech and race baiting to journalists.Karima Brown, journalist
The more they call us out as their enemies, the more their supporters and members feel emboldened to threaten us.Karima Brown, journalist
