JOHANNESBURG - The SACP has called on South Africans to protect journalists who are being attacked for doing their jobs.

Several journalists have come forward in recent weeks complaining about attacks from some politicians and political parties.

Last week, talk show host and journalist Karima Brown and News24 Editor-in-Chief Adriaan Basson both laid criminal charges against two EFF supporters for intimidation and threats.

SACP spokesperson Alex Mashilo said, “Everyone has a duty to say this must not be done.”
