PRETORIA – As the continent celebrates Africa Day on Wednesday, the EFF is set to march to the French Embassy in Pretoria, demanding that the European nation leaves the African continent.

“The EFF will picket at the French Embassy on Africa Day, to demand the withdrawal of France from the continent,” EFF national spokesperson Sinawo Thambo said in a media advisory.

Africa Day is celebrated annually on May 25, the day that the Organisation of African Union (OAU) – now known as the AU – was founded in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in 1963.

Meanwhile, the Tshwane Metro Police Department (TMPD) has urged residents and motorists in Pretoria to be aware of the numerous streets affected by the red berets’ march.

Tshwane Metro Police officers will be deployed to monitor march and all affected streets.
