Equality Court dismisses Gordhan’s hate speech complaint against Malema
Judge says the EFF leader’s utterances were hateful, but Pravin Gordhan failed to bring his grievances within the compass of the Equality Act
The Equality Court has dismissed public enterprises minister Pravin Gordhan’s hate speech complaint against EFF leader Julius Malema, who referred to him as a “dog of white capital”.
Judge Roland Sutherland ruled that the minister must pay the EFF’s costs in the case, which marks the second hate speech victory for the party in less than a week. ..
