Protest against Clicks in Pretoria:

A group of EFF accompanying the party’s Treasurer-General Omphile Maotwe forced Clicks store in Menlyn, Pretoria to shut its doors.

Employees who came in early quickly closed the store and left as a handful EFF members sung and danced in front of Clicks Menlyn.

Maotwe says they want Clicks stores to fall.

“We are here because they refused to close. We’re coming here to assist them to close and we want them to close for the rest of the week, everywhere in the country, in all their 880 outlets in the country. So we are here. I am deployed here in Menlyn because I am from Tshwane and therefore we are just making sure that Clicks is closed.”

“We are going to be here for the rest of the day and for the rest of the week. So we are coming back tomorrow, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday because we want Clicks to fall. Clicks must fall because Clicks undermines black people,” adds Maotwe.

In Cape Town:

An eNCA news crew were forced to leave the Goodwood Mall in Cape Town by EFF supporters who protested outside a Clicks store.

EFF national chairperson Veronica Mente refused to be interviewed by members of the media in the presence of eNCA.

She said the media house had taken a decision not to cover EFF events.

Police had to intervene to stop the altercation between a cameraperson and EFF supporters.
