Attack on Helen Zille amounts to defamation

I MUST express my disgust at the personal attack on Helen Zille by Julius Malema.

I think this time he went too far and his actions border on defamation. By labelling Zille a satanist Malema injured her good name.

Malema can neither provide evidence that Zille is satanist nor raise the normal defence that it is the truth and in the public interest.

Even if Malema is saying she is a satanist because under her Premiership mosques and churches were demolished in Western Cape. Malema cannot show that this was done on the instruction of Zille.

This is pure defamation of character and Zille should file a lawsuit.

We must respect the rights of others, including Zille's right to dignity.
