THE Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has hinted that another political party could be behind the removal of their poster near KwaMashu, north of Durban.

The party took to Twitter on Wednesday at midday and posted a before-and-after picture of where the poster was situated.

In the tweet, the EFF said the poster was put up three days ago on the side of a bridge on Queen Nandi Drive towards KwaMashu and alleged that it had been destroyed.

It further said "Ayesaba Amagwala" which means “You cowards are scared”.

They posted videos and photos of election posters where EFF posters were placed on other political party posters and vice-versa.

One Twitter user even said the EFF was “getting a taste of its own medicine”.

ActionSA got dragged into the mix because it was their posters that the EFF had covered. In fact, photos show that both parties had covered each other's posters.

Election poster fights are not new to South Africa.

Last year, the DA went as far as laying criminal charges after their election posters were removed, placed on the ground and ANC posters put up in their place in wards 32 and 36.

DA ward 36 councillor candidate Shontel de Boer believed the ANC could be behind the removal of her campaign posters.

However, the ANC said some of their posters were also removed from wards 32 and 36. As a result, they have laid charges at Brighton Beach SAPS.
