Scuffles between ANC members during #OccupyLuthuliHouse protests

Security forces were very worried when opposing African National Congress marched to Luthuli House earlier today, according to EWN reporter Clement Manyathela.

Members of the #OccupyLuthuliHouse protest, who were protesting calling for President Jacob Zuma, changed their initial plan, when another protest defending Zuma and Luthuli House emerged.

Umkhonto we Sizwe Military Veterans Association (MKMVA) confirmed that it had mobilised supporters under the campaign #DefendLuthuliHouse.

Just an hour into that gathering we saw another protest merging. They were calling themselves defenders of Luthuli House. I had spoken to some members of that group, some of them were coming all the way from Free State and KwaZulu Natal.

Journalists were pushed by MKMVA members who did not want the media to report on the #OccupyLuthuliHouse.

EWN reporter, Christa Eybers says some of the MKMVA members smelling alcohol.

A lot of MKMVA veterans were pushing us around, grabbing cameras. They were swearing. They even grabbed some of the women journalists inappropriately. I for one felt very violated.
