MBOMBELA – EFF’s provincial party leader Collen Sedibe immediately arrested by the police after being thrown out of the legislature with his co-leader, Alfred Skhosana, and did not get the chance to address their members.
Brig Leonard Hlathi provincial spokesperson says Sedibe faces charges of fraud and he (Hlathi) was not prepared to divulge much information at the moment.
EFF’s members clad in their red attire were seen near the Grove this morning singing. As a result of high-security measures on the roads surrounding Riverside Mall and the R40, no serious picketing took place, and all was in order. Tension was on the rise when a few members of the ANC intentionally provoked the EFF.
Nearby police immediately intervened, and the EFF members left the site and peacefully sang towards the shopping complex where they waited to be addressed by their leader, Collen Sedibe, after being thrown out of the legislature. They were not addressed as Sedibe got arrested immediately after leaving the legislature.
The EFF members said they would continue to disturb the SOPA in Msogwaba and cause chaos at the Mpumalanga Traffic College in Mkhuhlu.
