The African National Congress (ANC) were left fuming after a video went viral of a guard, who was stripped of his uniform and sacked after allegedly found drunk and sleeping at work.
The ruling party has since called on businesses, who enlists the security company's services, to cancel their contracts.
According to TimesLIVE, the ANC Youth League and angered residents were set to 'shut down' Bronkhorstspruit in Gauteng with a march on Tuesday.
The march aims to protest the treatment of the guard, who was caught on video walking in the rain with just a yellow rubbish bag around his waist.
As Briefly.co.za reported previously, a video of Charlie Mabuza, 36, was shared on social media.
Mabuza was stripped down to his undergarments and forced to walk 3km in the rain after his supervisor had caught him sleeping and intoxicated at work.
On duty at a factory in Ekandustria, the guard had fallen asleep while admittedly intoxicated. When he had been caught in the act, the supervisor had reacted in a harsh and humiliating manner.
The ANCYL's Mandlakayise Mahlangu confirmed the march against the security company and the police has since announced they were taking a closer look at the footage and treatment of Mabuza.
