The EFF has dismissed claims that it went to Sethokga hostel in Tembisa on Tuesday to provoke ANC members and incite violence.
The opposition party says it was attacked while EFF leader Julius Malema visited the hostel, which is believed to be an ANC stronghold.
EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi claims that two of its members were killed at the hostel during door-to-door campaigning, and Malema had gone to see were the members had died.
According to Ndlozi, the group of EFF members were confronted with "an organised mob carrying machetes, axes, spears and sticks."
He says that the freedom of movement is a constitutional right for all South Africans.

He says police did not take action against the violent ANC members during the standoff, and instead, fled the scene.
