Cape Town - Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema has vowed that the party will protest outside the Pretoria high court on Tuesday when the first part of Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan's court action against the Public Protector (PP) is heard.
"We are going to treat Jamnadas like a constitutional delinquent and anybody who does not like it can go home and have a nice cup of tea because there is nothing you can do about it," Malema told a media briefing in Cape Town on Thursday, referring to the minister by his middle name.
"Line up, let's meet on Tuesday, Jamnadas has taken (the) Public Protector to court and we are going to court and we will not be stopped by anyone.... No amount of intimidation can stop the EFF, we don't listen to anyone, we listen to our voters."
Malema railed against the South African Communist Party (SACP) for earlier in the day expressing support for Gordhan. The SACP said it would lobby the National Assembly to launch a process of reviewing Mkhwebane's fitness to hold office.
SACP spokesperson Alex Mashilo said the PP's finding that the minister allowed the establishment of a "rogue" intelligence unit within the South African Revenue Service, was part of a campaign to undermine a concerted government drive against corruption.
