The DA opened a criminal case against the EFF after their members allegedly attacked and vandalised Vodacom outlets over the weekend.
According to a report by The Citizen, charges of accessory to a crime and malicious damage to property were laid at the Polokwane police station.
This came after the EFF claimed to not be 'fazed' by the DA's earlier threats to lay charges.
Apparently, stores in Makhado and Polokwane were targeted by EFF supporters.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that the protestors were protesting against posters of Julius Malema and Floyd Shivambu shown at the Vodacom Journalist of the Year awards captioned 'abusers of democracy'.
News24 reported that 3 women were assaulted and goods were stolen during the incidents. The vandalism allegedly led to damage of about R500 000.
