EFF leader Julius Malema says the party will shut down Clicks stores across the country the whole week. Malema led a protest against racism outside Clicks store at the Mall of the North in Polokwane on Monday morning.
A store at Cycad Shopping Complex in Polokwane was petrol-bombed.
Clicks caused outrage on Friday after tweeting that a black woman’s hair was dull, dry, damaged, and frizzy. On the other hand, it said a white woman’s hair was straight and normal.
The red berets leader revealed that the party rejected the store’s apology and its suggestion to pay an undisclosed amount of money to any charity organization chosen by the party.
“We shouldn’t allow anyone to practice racism. Because Clicks loves money and wanted to make it at our expense, we are going to close Clicks stores in the country for the whole week,” Malema said.
“We will come back here if the management of the Mall of the North don’t commit to our demands. We will not accept any apology without justice, we want someone to lose their jobs for insulting black people.”
