EFF leader Julius Malema has apologised to the governing party after a video showing EFF members tearing down ANC election posters.
The ANC's head of elections Fikile Mbalula posted a Twitter video on Wednesday night showing the red berets ripping off ANC posters placed below EFF posters on a public wall.
The rowdy men appear to be having a confrontation with another group of men wearing ANC regalia over the territory.
Malema commented on the post, vowing to take action against what he calls "the highest form of stupidity" by his members.
He told Mbalula that the ANC posters would be restored and slammed the behaviour as highly unacceptable.
It is the highest form of stupidity and we are dealing with it tomorrow. They will put them back, highly unacceptable. My apology— Julius Sello Malema (@Julius_S_Malema) March 20, 2019
The official EFF Twitter account also tweeted a response, condemning the actions of its members.
We take note of a circulating video of EFF members removing posters of the ANC. We categorically condemn such an action & will take necessary steps against those fighters. We apologize to the ANC & pledge our commitment to a free & fair democratic contestation of these elections.— Economic Freedom Fighters (@EFFSouthAfrica) March 20, 2019
