After the storm had seemingly settled, Protesters return to Clifton beach for fun and leisure after a hectic time at the beach, shortly after some semblance of decorum was restored.
Similarly, the ANC in the Western Cape is returning to Clifton beach on Saturday afternoon in solidarity with protesters.
The uproar had escalate, in an incident in which a private security company removed beachgoers from the beach, sparking allegations of racial profiling.
The City of Cape Town says a fight forced the closure of the beach.
It maintains its beaches are open to everyone.
The security company involved, PPA, says it was helping city officials and police, a claim the city is denying.
The ANC is branding the incident as racially motivated.
Lobby group Black People’s National Crisis Committee slaughtered a sheep at the beach on Friday, claiming to be cleansing the area of racism.
Advocate Matthew Mphahlwa, a royal advisor to the abaTthembu, is arguing that slaughtering a sheep at Clinton Beach is not in line with any customary rites, but merely playing politics.
