Radical leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), has broken his silence on the littering saga which played out during protests at the University of the Free State (UFS).
On Monday, a disturbing video footage detailing inhumane aspects of the protest action found its way onto social media. The protests, emanating, in the case of UFS, from a labour struggle – not independent of the wave of student discontent which has swept over South African universities in recent months – garnered public outrage.
The student seen picking up litter, only to have that same litter strewn over the campus by peers in red regalia – believed to be members of the EFF Students Command.
