The Sonke Gender Justice Network says it will oppose the application for forgiveness of the late filing of an appeal by African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) president, Julius Malema, against an Equality Court hate speech ruling.
The organisation’s government and media relations manager, Mbuyiselo Botha, points out that, "Our lawyers think that we [Sonke] have a strong case and strong reasons."
Botha says the organisation will oppose the application because it feels that Malema is not taking the matter seriously. "On issues of patriarchy and violence against women -- it is just an afterthought to them," he says.
