Ghana High commission warn Ghanaians in SA ahead of national shutdown

The Ghana High commission in South Africa has warned its citizens to avoid mass gathering and restrict their movements to safe areas ahead of the Economic Freedom Party (EFF) planned “national shutdown” on Monday, 20th March, 2023.

According to mission, though, the organisers of the national shutdown have ensured peaceful protest. However, previous peace walks and demonstrations have turned violents.

The EFF is planning a national shutdown on 20 March, demanding the resignation of President Cyril Ramaphosa and an end to load shedding.
In the run-up to the shutdown, the party has been warning communities to shut businesses or risk looting.

In a statement cited by thepressradio.com, the mission advised members of the Ghanaian Community to be vigilant.

” The mission would thus like to advise members of the community to be vigilant to any such incidents, restrict their movements to safe areas, avoid mass gathering and contact the police for assistance when required’. The statement said.

Meanwhile, the South African Police Service (SAPS) has warned EFF that lawlessness, criminality will not be tolerated

The police said it is the responsibility of the EFF to ensure that its planned national shutdown does not turn violent and protests remain peaceful.
