Cops monitor EFF North West march

Mahikeng - Numerous police officers were deployed at the entrance to the Moretele local municipal offices in North West on Wednesday as EFF supporters marched on the premises.

Members of Julius Malema's Economic Freedom Fighters marched from Makapanstad to the municipal offices and congregated in an open space near the buildings. They set up a public address system near the entrance.

Several members of the African National Congress milled around outside the premises after allegedly attending a ward meeting.

Some of the ANC supporters, in yellow T-shirts bearing President Jacob Zuma's image, peeped through a security wall at the municipal offices.

A municipal fire engine was also parked at the entrance. A supermarket nearby shut its doors as the protesters began to gather.

On Wednesday morning, several police vehicles, including a Nyala, were parked near the crowd dressed in EFF red berets and T-shirts. A man led the singing over the public address system, which was mounted on a bakkie.

"Juju rea le wena (Julius we are going with you)," the crowd sang.

Malema was expected to address the protesters.
