Cape Town – The Economic Freedom Fighters on Monday voiced condemnation and disgust at the media following reports that party leader Julius Malema lived in a house owned by alleged tobacco smuggler Adriano Mazzotti.
The EFF condemns in the strongest terms and with the disgust it deserves, the publication of CIC (commander in chief) Julius Malema’s family residence.
In an attempt to discredit the leader of the EFF, media has published the residential address where his wife, the mother of two infant children lives
EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said.
Ndlozi said the reports, which situated the house in a luxury security estate in Johannesburg’s Hyde Park, compromised the security of Malema, as well as his wife and children.
No one, including civil society organisations or Sanef (the South African National Editors’ Forum) has said anything when the security of the Malema family is laid bare on public platforms.
After the journalist working on this story confirmed that the Malema family lives in that residential address they have gone on to publishing it, including images of the property itself
He went on to accuse the media of targetting the EFF and warned that the party would not tolerate being attacked.
