On Friday, hundreds of EFF members brought the traffic in the Sandton CBD to a stillstand with the #EFFEskomMarch.
The streets of Jozi was flooded by a sea of red as the opposition party marched to Eskom's headquarters.
Social media has blown up with videos and photos of the march and Briefly.co.za took a look at some of the footage.
In one of the clips, Juju led his comrades through a flooded street, proving not even bad weather will deter them from their goal.
EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu shared the clip on Twitter, captioning the post:
"There is no rain in the revolution, there is revolution in the rain and it’s No retreat! No surrender! #EFFEskomMarch!"

In other posts, hundreds of citizens sporting the EFF's signature red apparel were photographed and filmed walking in Sandton.
More footage showed supporters hanging onto every word EFF leader Julius Malema uttered. Take a look at the videos and photos below:
The EFF march kicked off on Friday morning with a dozen coal trucks blocking off roads in Sandton before it started.
The aim of the march is to protest the privatisation of Eskom as well as load-shedding. However, soon cries for Pravin Gordhan to be sacked also sounded as the EFF and their supporters marched.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier Juju also called for President Cyril Ramaphosa's removal.
He said: “Down with load-shedding, down. Down with Ramaphosa, down. We are going to block Rivonia Road for 30 minutes because they are living in luxury. We have seen some stupid police provoking our members. It is our land, it is our country. We will protest however we wish to.”
