JOHANNESBURG - The Black First Land First (BLF) movement says it’s surprised by media reports that it didn’t comply with an interdict issued by the Johannesburg High Court.

The BLF insists it has complied with the court interdict granted to the South African National Editors Forum (Sanef) against Andile Mngxitama and the movement.

It says it has published a statement as per the court order that it will not intimidate and harass journalists.

The group says protesting at the Gupta family home is as undesirable as protesting at the home of Peter Bruce.

Deputy President Zanele Lwana says, “We welcome the resolution of the court, that no one must protest outside private homes. And we do hope that this is something that will be accepted by the society at large.”
