Cape Town - Members of the Economic Freedom Fighters were arrested in Cape Town on Friday for throwing faeces at the Sanlam head office in Bellville.

Sanlam’s spokesperson Ainsley Moos told News24 between 20 and 30 protesters wearing red EFF berets gathered outside the company’s head office in Bellville, Cape Town, at about 10:30 with three tyres and containers containing faeces.

Police were immediately alerted and a scuffle ensued after which some protesters managed to run away while others were arrested.

One container of faeces was strewn near the office’s entrance.
The party’s provincial convenor Nazier Petersen confirmed to News24 that some members took part in the protest and were arrested.

Petersen said the party wanted the arrested members released from police custody.

Moos said the incident regarded an employee who was contracted by a labour broker to Sanlam for a period of six months and the broker terminated the contract.

Moos said the incident lasted 15 minutes.
