A video has become public on Social Media today showing the retaliation from the EFF members towards a Security guard.
It has been alleged that the security guard made attempts to forcefully remove a woman from the chambers in Eastern Cape and an altercation broke out.
In the video you can see multiple members overpower the security guard and throw multiple punches, with the sound available you can hear the thuds when the fists connect with the guard. At times he looked confused and helpless, while he stopped to speak to the members more punches came towards him.
The injuries to the guard are unknown at this time however, from the clip swelling and blood coming from the mouth is visible.
It has now been reported by the EFF on Twitter that the incident occurred after the Eastern Cape legislature requested EFF MPLs to be removed for dressing “inappropriately”
