- The Economic Freedom Fighters are furious after a man, identified only as Johann Spies, allegedly stole a beret
- The party recently hosted protests in Brackenfell and apparently the beret was nicked during one of the demonstrations
- Spies has been warned, in no uncertain terms, that the EFF would search the entire suburb to find him
Someone has stolen a red beret from the Economic Freedom Fighters and the party is furious.
After staging protests on Friday the party took to social media to issue a warning to the individual who had nicked the iconic symbol of the EFF:
"We reiterate the call for the terrorist Johann Spies to return the beret of the EFF, or the EFF will conduct a door-to-door campaign in Brackenfell to retrieve our symbolic mark of resistance ourselves. He must not test us! "
This response comes on the back of intense protests in Brackenfell, with the party expressing its gratitude to all who had participated in the demonstrations against racism:
"The EFF extends its revolutionary gratitude to all Commissars, Fighters and Ground Forces for a show of force against racism and the DA-led police state at Brackenfell today. In the face of deliberate attempts to undermine the program of the EFF, Fighters remained disciplined and militant, and dealt decisively with all forms of provocation."
The EFF is adamant that it isn't about to back down regarding allegations of racism at Brackenfell High School.
The political party has demanded that the school must fire two teachers who have allegedly been involved in the planning of a 'whites-only' matric dance'.
The Red Berets have promised that they would 'permanently' occupy the Western Cape suburb if their demands are not met.
The school has been handed a seven-day deadline to meet the EFF's demands with the party commenting:
"The EFF maintains that we will return to Brackenfell High School should all the teachers, the Principal and the School Governing Body involved in organizing and attending a white only matriculant-party not be removed from their positions."
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that the Department of Education in the Western Cape had made it clear that the event in question was privately organised.
The local Education MEC explained that the school had not been involved in the planning of the event and therefore no further action will be taken.
As for the two teachers that had attended, the MEC said they had no way of knowing who would ultimately pitch for the party.
