Zille to go to court over defamation

A defamation case against Julius Malema… among others.

Lawyers for Democratic Alliance leader Helen Zille will approach to Cape High Court on Tuesday in a bid to speed up a defamation case against ANC Youth League president Julius Malema.

“It’s related to case from two-and-a-half years ago of a defamation case against Julius Malema… among others,” her spokesman Jordan Hill-Lewis said on Monday.

He said the actual merits of the case would not be heard, but it was a bid by Zille — in her personal capacity — to force Malema to submit court papers.

“It’s taken a long time to come to court because the respondents in the case have refused to file their responding papers… [It’s a move] to compel them to respond.

“If they still don’t then the case proceeds without them,” he said.

The matter relates to comments including that Zille had concubines in Cabinet.
