Journalist and presenter, Karima Brown, has hit back at Economic Freedom Fighters leader, Julius Malema, saying his accusations of her being a State Security spy are unfounded.
This, after Brown accidentally posted an editorial note on the EFF’s WhatsApp media group on Tuesday night, which was supposed to be directed to her media house.
In it, Brown directs the group to monitor Malema’s event on the East Rand – where he met with the elderly to hear their grievances ahead of the May 8 polls.
However, Malema says Brown is out to destroy the EFF. And he believes she is sending a message to spies at the event.
Brown says the EFF is a threat to democracy. “The EFF is a threat to our democracy. I am not going to negotiate with the EFF if I can do my job as a journalist. I am not going to seek their position and I am not going to ask them for the right to do my work. I don’t work for State Security. I am a journalist who is employed at eNCA and 702. I brief journalists everyday and so, what Malema is saying is complete and utter nonsense.”
