JOHANNESBURG – The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) is holding a media briefing post day two of its three-day elective conference.

During the elective conference, the party’s leader Julius Malema has questioned the role of journalists who cover stories about the country's third-largest political party.

Malema said he was aware of what he called the escalating disdain when it came to how journalists report about the EFF.

He was addressing over 3,000 EFF members on Saturday attending the three-day elective conference, which commenced on Friday, at Nasrec.

Malema claimed some media houses have encroached on human rights in their reporting.
