Bheki Cele, Police Minister said on Wednesday that as protests went on at Clicks stores, there are ready to arrest a minimum of 15 people.
After instructions from EFF party leader to its members to “attack” Clicks stores on Monday, hundred of Clicks stores are forced to shut down, while others are damaged by Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) members.
The EFF wants the closure of Clicks to stay on till Friday after it published a controversial racist advert on its website by portraying black natural hair as “dry, damaged, and frizzy.”
On Wednesday, the police minister said while EFF continued with the protests in South Africa , police made sure damage to properties was avoided.
“The genesis of this advert is glaring racism that’s shown by this business and that we must collectively condemn it in the least costs. The demonstration of such blatant disregard and humiliation of African people can’t go unabated,” Cele said during a statement.
“Police should make sure that the rule of law is maintained. they need to deal decisively with those that prefer to break the law. I’m encouraged that officers are making arrests and urge them to still make sure the protection and safety of consumers , staff members within the affected areas.”
