    EFF PICKET: See which streets will be affected in Pretoria

    The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) will picket outside the French Embassy in Pretoria today [Wednesday].

    The picket is to demand the withdrawal of France from the continent. 


    The EFF said its ultimate goal is one continent with a single currency, a unitary African parliament with teeth and one President.

    They also want France to stop interfering in African issues.

    The marchers will gather from 09:00 at Magnolia Park, corner of University Road and Florence Ribeiro Avenue, Muckleneuk, Pretoria, said Tshwane metro police spokesperson Senior Superintendent Isaac Mahamba.


    From Magnolia Park,  marchers will join Florence Ribeiro Avenue, turn left at Boshoff Street, right to Melk Street and proceed straight until they reach the French Embassy at 250 Melk Street, Nieuw Muckleneuk, Pretoria.

    The following intersections will be affected:

    • Nicolson Street  
    • Totius Street 
    • Mackie Street
    • Boshoff Street
    • Melk Street 

    Mahamba said the crowd is expected to disperse from French embassy at 13:00.

    Tshwane Metro Police officers will be deployed to monitor the EFF picket and all affected streets. 

    Motorists are advised to avoid affected streets and use alternative routes such as:

    • Justice Mohammed Street
    • Middel Street
    • Dey Street
    • Walter Lanham Street


    Meanwhile, the National Education, Health and Allied Workers’ Union (NEHAWU) along with the Public Servants Association of South Africa (PSA) will embark on a march to the National Treasury today (Wednesday).

    The strike comes as a result of the deadlock in wage negotiations that have been ongoing since January 2022 when tabling workers’ demands to SARS. 

    The union declared a dispute after it was clear that the employer was not responding to their wage demands. Instead, was unwavering that the institution does not have money due to National Treasury’s austerity measures.

    The union said it is ready for the full-blown strike to kick start, where members shall demonstrate their power and send a clear message that no employer must take workers for granted hence the fight to defend our hard-won gains.

    The march also starts at 09:00.
