'This is unacceptable': Clash between ANC and EFF members at IEC centres in KZN
In related news, Briefly News previously reported that ugly scenes broke out at the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC)'s registration centres at Kwa-Dambuza and Willowfontein townships in Pietermaritzburg in KwaZulu-Natal on Sunday.
The clashes reportedly happened between Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) and African National Congress (ANC) members during a voter mobilisation drive by the former's leader, Julius Malema.
Malema reacted by saying the elections cannot be free and fair when the governing party is blocking other parties from registering voters.
According to a SABC News report, ANC members were allegedly seen blocking the former ANC Youth League leader from entering the registration station in Kwa-Dambuza.
Malema met even stronger resistance at Willowfontein's Thandokuhle registration station, where the gates were reportedly locked, IOL reported.
Malema vows to lodge a complaint with IEC
It was here that EFF members formed a human shield to protect Malema before escorting him to the voting station to oversee the voter registration process.
Briefly News understands that the conduct was later denounced by both Malema and President Cyril Ramaphosa.
“We are going to complain with the IEC. I have seen [an official] of the IEC filming the whole incident," Malema noted, calling for the ruling party's disqualification from electioneering in the Kwa-Dambuza.
"We are going to complain [because] this is unacceptable. The ANC must be disqualified, particularly in this ward, for conducting themselves in the manner they did,” said Malema, accusing the ruling party of intolerance.
