Erasa is bewus van die sosiale media misbruik van enkele lede en selfs nie-lede in die onlangse verlede.

Erasa versoek lede om assblief dissiplinere optrede sy gang te laat gaan. Die tyds verloop is voorgeskryf in grondwet.

Erasa kan nie reageer op selektiewe aantygings nie. Die saak is sub judice.

Erasa verwys vriendelik na klousule 40 van SAEF grondwet wat handel oor sosiale media misbruik.
