'Luthuli House is not a Key Point'
Right2Know were allegedly told Luthuli House was a temporary National Key Point.
JOHANNESBURG - The Ministry of Police says there's no such thing as a temporary National Key Point after officials allegedly claimed Luthuli House had been declared one.
On Monday, Right2Know campaigners were allegedly told by police they could not protest outside the African National Congress's headquarters because President Jacob Zuma was in a meeting inside, making it a temporary National Key Point.
The organisation is currently challenging the constitutionality of the National Key Points Act.
Right2Know's Dale McKinley says they were told they couldn't hold their protest on the street outside Luthuli House.
"They told us Luthuli House was going to be declared or had been declared a National Key Point due to the fact that the President and Deputy President were there."
But the police ministry's Zweli Mnisi says this is not true.
"Luthuli House is the office space of a political party and hasn't been declared a National Key Point. We want to caution against people who might be misleading others based on the current debate on the National Key Points Act."
Parliament is currently discussing changes to the Act.
