The Economic Freedom Fighters wants to carry out a citizen’s arrest on the man who threatened a mother at a Spur restaurant in Johannesburg.
He was involved in a heated exchange with the woman in full view of children and other patrons.
The EFF’s Mbuyiseni Ndlozi says they can’t leave it up to police to act.
“We want to go and pay him a visit. We’ll do a citizen’s arrest in terms of intimidation and other wrong things in terms of the law,” said EFF spokesman Mbuyiseni Ndlozi.
Ndlozi said the incident is a result of many years of white supremacy and apartheid
White masculinity in this country must know that it is responsible for the majority of the problems in this country,” he said.
“At the centre of it is a fundamental low self-esteem and that’s what you saw with the Spur video.
“The majority of white men are like that and that’s why they have had to live with violence to impose themselves continuously upon this society.”
Meanwhile, the patron has been banned from all Spur restaurants nationwide.
The video of the heated altercation went viral on social media.
Spur management released a statement on Facebook after the incident.
It condemns the behaviour of the two parents and violence against women and children.
