CAPE TOWN - The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has condemned the barring of EFF members from the Eastern Cape State of the Province.

EFF members who arrived at the provincial legislature for the event on Friday were thrown out, allegedly because they were wearing their trademark red overalls.

They were told that what they were wearing was not allowed in the legislature.

The EFF's Nazier Paulsen is outraged.

"We expect every opportunity for the ruling party to show intolerance will grab that with both hands. There is nothing that prevents a member from wearing red overalls. As long as it's neat and clean."
