Magistrate Naren Sewnarain said Hofmeyr exposed himself to criticism, satire and ridicule, and that he agreed with Koch’s defence that Koch had a right to campaign against Hofmeyr’s remarks.The court ordered Hofmeyr and his representative in court, activist Dan Roodt, to pay Koch’s advocate costs, as well as the cost of the application.
Upon leaving the court, with Chester Missing no longer gagged, he hit out at Roodt, who, in turn, hit the puppet.
Missing said he may have open a case now as he had been “klapped.” Roodt, who was visibly incensed, said the “boere would not be silenced”.
