EFF supporters joined the funeral of Nathaniel Julies on Saturday. Looking at the video that has been posted by The Citizens it appears mourners at the funeral did not appreciate the party being present.
One Social Media user has said “A political party attending an innocent boy’s funeral like this really leaves a bad taste in the mouth. This is about Nathaniel Julies and not the EFF, We respect they are pushing for justice but let this day be about him and not your party.”
NewsLiteSA previously reported on the incident that happened with Police and Nathaniel Julies “The shootout between the gang members and police broke out after the police received a tip about stolen car parts in the area.”

Grandstanding at a funeral is bottom of the barrel.— Ms_Gupta 🇿🇦 ❤️ (@African_Spring) September 5, 2020
How low, disgusting, pathetic, opportunistic, can this party get.— Insimbi Iyagaduzela (@Imbube1992) September 5, 2020
Im sickened to my stomach.
So now the death of an innocent coloured child is being used as a piece of politics for this party.
and they still have the nerve to argue with family members when asked to leave.
