Clement Manyathela speaks to Economic Freedom Fighters spokesperson Vuyani Pambo and KREAM restaurant owner Tufan Yerebakan about the party's visit to the mall.

Security has been heightened at Mall of Africa in Midrand as the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) visit restaurants.

The party says the visit is to check the employment ratio between South Africans and foreign nationals.

Clement Manyathela speaks to the owner of KREAM restaurant Tufan Yerebakan about the visit.

I will be courteous enough to answer in writing but I don't need to be part of a spectacle for political reasons and my foreign staff are afraid and I'm not going to support that.

Tufan Yerebakan, Restaurant owner, KREAM

The security will be heightened but there is nothing I can do, as you how the EFF deals with things there is not much I can do. The foreign nationals have legal working visas.

EFF spokesperson Vuyani Pambo says the visit is to check that the foreign nationals working at these restaurants are not exploited.

We will accept a 60% employment of South Africans and 40% of foreign nationals. We still hold that we need a borderless Africa. We are not budging on that.

Vuyani Pambo, Spokesperson - Economic Freedom Fighters

We are not saying hire South Africans exclusively, we are saying hire them in the main and complement with other nationals.
