State of the Province Address #GPSONA2017

EFF members pelt police with stones, demanding entry to #GPSOPA2017

Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) tried to enter Randfontein stadium where Gauteng Premier David Makhura delivers his State of the Province Address (Sopa).

According to EWN reporter Masego Rahlaga reporting from the stadium, EFF members started pelting stones at a police nyala demanding entry to the stadium.

What they did was to go around the nyala, and started breaking part of the wall to try and get entry. Of course, the police nyala started driving towards them. But they pelted stones again. They started singing.
