NATIONAL NEWS - Herald spoke with Economic Freedom Fighter (EFF) party members following the altercation that occurred at Checkers supermarket at the Lifestyle Centre in Tzaneen on Tuesday, January 23.
The dispute followed after a common assault case was opened by a Checkers employee against the supermarket manager. Three EFF party members entered the store, demanding the arrest of the manager, but were quickly removed by security personnel. Upon eviction, they threatened to come back with more members.
EFF Mopani told the Herald, “every time we see a white lady or a white man beating one of our brothers or sisters, it reminds us of Apartheid. We will not stand back.”
