SanefNews24 reports that the SA National Editors’ Forum (Sanef) has welcomed Black First Land First’s (BLF’s) compliance with a High Court order that they should denounce violence against journalists.  

BLF said at a press briefing on Sunday that it was in full compliance with a court order relating to the intimidation and harassment of journalists.  Sanef had given BLF until 10:00 on Sunday to send out a revised statement after it had said that it had failed to comply with the court order in at least two aspects.  On Friday, Judge Corrie van der Westhuizen interdicted the BLF and its leader Andile Mngxitama from intimidating and assaulting journalists and going to their homes.  Additionally, this covered conduct on social media.  In a statement issued on 11 July, the BLF stated that it was in agreement with the court order and that it did not condone the intimidation, harassment, assault on and threats made to any journalists by BLF members.
