South Africa, Pretoria – EFF members kneel in protest at the US embassy against the killing of Lindani Myeni.
According to reports, Tshwane regional secretary Nqobile Mhlongo led the fighters who held burning candles and kneeled in a straight line outside the entrance of the embassy while reading out the names of black men and women who were killed by the police in America in recent years.
They said beyond being angered by Hawaii police for the senseless shooting to death of Myeni, they hated that his family in KwaZulu-Natal could not make funeral arrangements because they were not sure when his body would be repatriated, until KwaZulu-Natal Premier Sihle Zikalala announced that his body would arrive on Friday.
Mhlongo said, We are disgusted by the actions of the racist police that are in the US, however we are not surprised by their behaviour.
She also said, The US government has been a government of apartheid and they have led the onslaught of the black man throughout the whole African continent. They come here to steal our natural resources and rape us and kill us. It is something they have been doing for a very long time.
