The EFF in the North West is protesting against the Coligny Magistrate's Court's decision to grant bail to two men accused of murdering teenager Matlhomola Moshoeu.

 

They want the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) to fast-track the process to appeal the bail ruling and for the provincial government to put a hold on their reconciliation programme for the community.

 

The EFF's Betty Diale says the community must continue to protest until the two men are behind bars.

 

"The EFF demands that the SAPS must stop favouring white people on cases of racism. We demand that the SAPS must treat people of Coligny equally and stop being biased in favour of white people," says Diale.

Police Brigadier Hulikani Mabilo received the memorandum on behalf of the provincial police commissioner and assured marchers that the memorandum will be delivered to the commissioner.

 

"We believe that in terms of this memorandum, the SAPS will respond promptly in term of all the issues that have been raised. The memorandum will be delivered today," says Mabilo.
