JOHANNESBURG – Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) members have gathered at Church Square in Pretoria for a march to the Israeli embassy.

Several roads will be closed to traffic on Thursday morning, as marchers make their way through the CBD.

The red berets are expected to picket outside the embassy in solidary with the Palestinians.

Tshwane mayoral spokesperson Sam Mgobozi says that marchers are only expected to disperse at 5pm this afternoon.

“Some of the roads have been closed and traffic has been delayed.”
