A video has been posted on Twitter showing what appears to be EFF members physically manhandling an elderly woman.
Be aware that the footage below is not for sensitive viewers:
Are these the people who claim to respect the elderly?— 🇸🇿💛❤️🇿🇦👑La Nkosi👑🇿🇦❤️💛🇸🇿 (@intombikatata) May 8, 2019
Are these the very same people that promise our elderly grants worth more than what they are receiving whilst they lack empathy? Hayini bethunana! pic.twitter.com/sWesaUhYCy
The incident may be linked to the EFF's recent statement regarding special voting, where it accuses the IEC of allowing those with special votes to vote again on 8 May.
