GARDEN ROUTE DISTRICT NEWS - True to their word, the EFF continued their protest action in front of Clicks earlier today at the Garden Route Mall in George.
After being removed from the premises by the Public Order Police, they moved their sights to Mossel Bay where they are currently targeting two malls - Mossel Bay Mall and Langeberg Mall – making sure the chain store can't continue business.
EFF provincial chairperson Melikhaya Xego said they plan to close stores everywhere until Friday 11 September.
In George four men aged between 28 and 42 were arrested on Monday outside the Clicks store at Van der Stel Square in the Central Business District during a local EFF protest.
Asked about the party’s violent protests elsewhere in the country, Xego said their protests in the Garden Route are peaceful.
According to Southern Cape police spokesperson Captain Malcolm Pojie the arrests on Monday were in connection with the contravention of the Disaster Management Act (lockdown), by means of an illegal gathering, as well as hindering the police in the execution of their duties.
The four suspects were released and warned to appear in the George Magistrate's Court on 1 October.
