The ANC has accused the EFF of defacing their posters in Underberg.

Supporters from the ANC and EFF butted heads during Julius Malema’s visit to a voting station in Dambuza, in Edendale, on Sunday.

Dambuza is an ANC stronghold and home to some of the party’s leaders, such as the late Harry Gwala, the late member of parliament Shakes Cele and SACP secretary-general Dr Blade Nzimande. Malema visited the area as part of his campaign trail across KwaZulu-Natal.

ANC supporters were alleged to have tried to block his entourage and a group of EFF supporters chanted “Siyangena la (We are going in)” as they pushed their way through the entrance of the voting station.
