Shortly after 1100 local time (0900 UTC) on 19 May 2022, police officers in the capital Pretoria deployed stun grenades and rubber bullets to disperse members of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) party who were blocking access to the Tshwane House, located in the city center. The gathering was organized to protest a scheduled budget speech. At least one protester reportedly sustained injuries during the demonstration. EFF opposes the city government’s plans to reverse the process of insourcing workers in the security and cleaning services.
