EFF won't be deterred by "cartoonists posing as soldiers" #NationalDayofAction

Thousands of South Africans, including members of opposition parties and civil rights organisations are expected to join the National Day of Action in Pretoria today.

According to EFF national chairperson Advocate Dali Mpofu people are already gathering at Church Square, where the march is starting, and will end at the Union Buildings later in the day.

Mpofu says the involved parties are simply acting on a nation wide cry, a common issue, which makes South African's unhappy.

Minister of Police, Fikile Mbalula, on Tuesday said violence will not be tolerated during Wednesday's National Day of Action.

ANC members wearing military regalia were seen beating up members of the opposition last Friday but Mpofu says that will not happen on this march.

They will never try that knowing we are there. Those so-called soldiers in cheap uniform they will not come near us.

They can scare other parties but they will never scare us... not cartoonists posing as soldiers
