On Tuesday, the High Court issued its judgment on the matter regarding the Public Protector's adverse findings against the president's CR17 campaign, which included allegations of money laundering by the president.
In a scathing judgment, the court reviewed and set aside the findings in the Public Protector's Bosasa report, describing them as fatally flawed.
The EFF said that it would appeal the ruling with the Constitutional Court.
It said that the ruling had also effectively rendered the oath of members of Parliament futile, uprooting the respect the important arm of the state had.
