- The EFF has once again decided to march for human rights - this time against gender-based violence - in Kraaifontein and Malelane
- The political party came out in their numbers to show support to black people who have been abused
- Roads have been blocked in both towns in order to take the necessary safety measures
The Economic Freedom Fighters are at it again and have caused roadblocks in two different towns in the process today. In Kraaifontein, Cape Town the motorists have been cautioned that the EFF was going to march in support of gender-based violence and other issues.
According to unconfirmed reports, the political party set tires alight and stoned vehicles in their process of marching. They then promised that they would continue marching peacefully since there had been police called to the scene. The protest was held from 8am until 2pm on Friday.
The same thing happened in the small town Malelane, Mpumalanga. The Kruger National Park gate in the town was closed due to EFF marches.
SANParks spokesperson Ike Phaahla warned visitors to avoid driving to the area just as a precaution.
“We know that protests can be rowdy so we have taken the decision to close the Malelane gate as a precautionary measure to keep our visitors safe,” he said.
On Twitter, the EFF said that they were going to visit Johan Rupert's farm. This is to defend black people and their alleged exploitation by the white monopoly. The EFF has not been known to rest when marching for human rights and this time it is no different as they have even gone as far as coming out in numbers, causing roadblocks.
In other EFF news, Briefly.co.za reported that Julius Malema was charged with terrorism for 'threats' against the police. Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema is once again in the spotlight with yet another legal battle loading. Agricultural and farming organisation TLU SA has announced it has laid a criminal charge of terrorism against Malema.
This follows Malema telling supporters in the Free State that the party would not back down from police officials:
"If SA police want a fight, they must declare it. We will treat them the same way we treated them in the 80s. We will not only fight them at the picket lines. We will go to their homes and fight them in their own houses with their own families.”
