The party has finally paid the Afrikaner lobby group its money back, although the amount is now half of what was initially demanded.

Afrikaner lobby group AfriForum announced on Monday that the Economic Freedom Fighters and its leader Julius Malema obeyed court orders and paid an amount of R126,703.59 into its account.

The group’s CEO Kallie Kriel said: “This amount was due after a judge gave a punitive cost order against Malema and the EFF in favour of AfriForum on 12 September 2017.”

The cost orders come from AfriForum’s lawsuit against EFF and its leader to obtain an interdict to prevent them from inciting people to enter land illegally.
