Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) members and supporters marched to the Phoenix police station against what they say were ‘racial killings’ in Phoenix, during the civil unrest that took place in some parts of KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng.
It is reported that 36 people were killed in the looting and violence in the Phoenix area.
Supporting the EFF was the African Democratic Change.
African Democratic Change leader, Visvin Reddy, said they will stand with the EFF because it is marching for peace.
“It’s a march for peace and whichever organisation or individual that stands up for reconciliation and for bringing communities together, we will stand with them. This does not mean that we lose our identity. I’m the national leader of the African Democratic Change,” said Reddy.
He said joining the EFF March does not mean they are working with the EFF.
“I differ with them on a number of issues, but on the issue of bringing peace between the different communities, I stand with them,” he added.
EFF eThekwini regional spokesperson Mazwi Blose said a lot of black people were killed like animals, therefore police need to be reminded of their constitutional duties.
