Three people, allegedly EFF members, were arrested after protesters threw faeces at Sanlam’s head office in Bellville, Cape Town, on Friday.

“Around 10.30am a group of about 20 to 30 people, wearing red berets and claiming to be members of the Economic Freedom Fighters, gathered at our main reception,” Sanlam spokesman Ainsley Moos said.

The group placed tyres and containers of faeces at the entrance to the reception area.

Staff called the police, and as the group tried to empty the containers a scuffle broke out between them and police.

Captain Frederick van Wyk said police arrived and told the group their protest was illegal.

“They were asked to leave the area… They started to pour out the faeces onto the ground and throwing it towards the Sanlam building.”

Two people were arrested.
