EFF supporters joined the funeral of Nathaniel Julies on Saturday. According to The Citizen, “Mourners at Nathaniel Julies’ funeral and Eldorado Park community members accused EFF supporters who were present of disrespecting the funeral by trying to shift the focus onto the party”.
Earlier this week, the EFF and police were involved in an argument at the Protea Magistrate’s Court in Soweto before two police officers appeared in connection with the shooting death of Nathaniel Julies.
SA Updates previously reported that the shootout between the gang members and police arose after the police received a tip about stolen car parts in the area. Nathaniel allegedly ended up in the crossfire between the police and gang members. Nathaniel was born with Down’s syndrome.
