The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF)’ week-long planned protest shutdown of Clicks stores around the country was interdicted by the High Court in Pretoria.
However, acting Judge Norman Manoim has interdicted the party along with those acting in concert with, from inciting violence against the retailer’s ordinary operations.
Judge Manoim has also barred the party and its supporters from intimidating Clicks customers and staff as they were doing yesterday.
“Manoim issued the interdict on Tuesday morning, in response to a second urgent application brought by the retailer on Monday night after its first one was dismissed on a legal technicality on Monday morning.”
The EFF has responded to Clicks over an advert for a hair care product by Unilever’s TRESemmé that surfaced on its website last week.
According to the advert included images of a black women’s hair accompanied by the words dry, damaged and Frizzy and dull next to images of white women’s hair and the words [fine and flat and normal].
Although, the EFF said interdiction did not declare a protest illegal, meaning that their protest will continue as per planned from initial starting point.
Today their protest still continues regardless of court interdict stopping them from intimidating Clicks staff and employers. Clicks store are still closed even today.
