The EFF have called their members to assemble in Cape Town's CBD on Thursday for a peaceful protest against President Jacob Zuma’s State of the Nation Address (Sona).
It's expected that between 2000 and 3000 EFF supporters will gather at Church Street today.
However, the City of Cape Town advises that they did not receive or approve a permit application from the opposition party.
MayCo member for safety and security, JP Smith says only one gatherings permit has been approved and issued, making any other gatherings unlawful.
The City has granted the ANC permission to gather its expected 10 000 supporters at the Grand Parade for a so-called people's assembly this afternoon.
Any other gathering is unlawful and the police will act accordingly.— JP Smith, MayCo Member for Safety and Security
Smith says the EFF's planned gathering will be unlawful and public order police will monitor all gatherings in the city centre.
