Eusebius dissects the Karima Brown vs EFF ruling

Veteran journalist Karima Brown successfully won her legal case against the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) in the High Court on Thursday.

The court found that the EFF contravened the electoral code following the publication of her cellphone number on social media by party leader Julius Malema.

Eusebius McKaiser dissects the judment in detail.

She wanted the court to declared that the EFF had violated the electoral code of conduct. She had also hoped that they would be fined.
