“The magnitude of the threats differs from other planned closures and that is why we have to be more vigilant,” said Mkhwanazi, who has warned the opposition Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) party that he will be charged if there are deaths and property damage, reports the South African newspaper ‘The Witness’.

For his part, the Minister of Police, Bheki Cele, has warned the protesters that all those who are caught violating the law, or preventing other people from going to their jobs, will be arrested.

“Those who are going to protest have the right to march, but there are restrictions and ways and measures to follow. They have no permission or right to harm anyone, or prevent any South African who wants to go to work,” said Cele, who has promised that will protect all those who want to go to their job.

“No one should loot or force anyone to close their businesses. We will be there to stop anyone who tries to force someone to do something against their will,” he stressed.
