- | 5 months ago

An owner of a salon in Garsfontein, Pretoria, shut her doors on Monday after a tweet from an EFF member alleged she had been taking down posters advertising the party’s manifesto launch.

Tyrone Mkansi, who does media and communications for the EFF, took to Twitter to share the removal of the poster (he alleged multiple posters were removed) and to accuse the woman of being “racist”.
