Police have arrested six people who were allegedly part of a group that trashed a Vodacom shop in the Mall of the North in Polokwane, Limpopo, on Sunday. The group claimed to be EFF supporters or members.
Limpopo police spokesperson Moatshe Ngoepe said the six had been arrested in and around Polokwane on Wednesday.
They will appear in the Polokwane Magistrate’s Court on Friday on charges of malicious damage to property.
The incident happened after Vodacom showed a photograph of EFF leader Julius Malema and deputy president Floyd Shivambu on Thursday night at the Vodacom Journalist of the Year awards ceremony in Midrand with the caption “Abusers of democracy!”.
