JOHANNESBURG - Judgment has been reserved in the case against an Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) councillor candidate for Tshwane.

The Independent Electoral Commission wants Thabo Mabotja disqualified from contesting next week&39;s polls.

This after he took to social media, calling for all white people to be hacked and killed.

The Independent Electoral Commission’s lawyer says Mabotja completely disregarded the dignity and rights of many.

The EFF distanced itself from its member, saying it would not be defending his statement.
