Members of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) on Tuesday stormed into the Gauteng Legislature during their march in Johannesburg.

The party members had marched to the legislature to protest against the removal of their MPLs during a sitting on July 1.

The EFF crowd pushed its way past the police officers who were standing guard at the entrance and stormed inside. Other members who were prevented from getting in when the door was shut and locked continued to sing struggle songs in front of the legislature where police struggled to maintain order.

Those who got in were removed, except for the party’s provincial leaders and its leader Julius Malema. They were in a meeting in the building around noon on Tuesday.
