The party says it will approach courts to interdict the red berets against illegal action they may embark on during the shutdown.

The EFF is planning to take it to the streets next Monday calling for President Cyril Ramaphosa to resign and for an end to load-shedding. When party president Julius Malema announced the shutdown he said: “We are not threatened by security and if they want to violate our rights they will find us ready.”

Gauteng police commissioner Lt-Gen Elias Mawela said police are “prepared” and will “be on the ground” during the national shutdown.
