SanefEWN reports that the SA National Editors Forum (Sanef) has indicated that it is consulting with its lawyers after members of the Black First Land First (BLF) disrupted a town hall meeting held to discuss leaked Gupta emails and state capture.  

Earlier this month, the High Court in Johannesburg granted an interdict against the movement to stop its members from harassing, intimidating, assaulting and threatening journalists.  Sanef claimed that the BLF violated that interdicted by disrupting the amaBhungane event in Braamfontein on Thursday.  Chairperson Mahlatse Gallens said:  “There was harassment and threats to the journalists, including those that were part of the initial interdict that we won at the Johannesburg High Court.  We are also encouraging everybody that was involved yesterday to go to the police and lay a complaint because we want to see the police actually act.”
