Cape Town – The EFF accused DA provincial leader Patricia de Lille on Friday of blaming its members for violence in Dunoon. 

"We want to make it clear to the public in Dunoon that they should not be used by politicians to poison their brains," regional EFF leader Tlhabanelo Diholo said.

He said De Lille was spreading rumours in the media that the EFF was causing havoc in the area.

"We are meeting foreign nationals to clear the air that we are not fighting against them," Diholo said.

The EFF considered foreigners as family and they were more than welcome in the country, he said. 

Dunoon residents have been protesting for several weeks. A community hall and a local ward councillor's offices were set alight.

Foreign-owned shops were looted and damaged and the MyCity bus service was disrupted. Residents want land, housing and service delivery.
