Cops fire rubber bullets at EFF members during Eastern Cape budget speech

- | a month ago

Police spokesperson Captain Siphokazi Mawisa said the members, who were wearing red overalls, came in their numbers to listen to the provincial budget speech, but were denied access and only MPLs were allowed entry to the chamber.

Mawisa said public order police stopped EFF members from entering the legislature. This after EFF members clashed with security personnel inside the legislature on Tuesday.

In that incident, the party's leader in the province, Yazini Tetyana, claimed they were responding to an incident when a female EFF member, who was in the public gallery, was allegedly attacked by a security officer.
