Patrons at Walmer Park Shopping Centre in Port Elizabeth were left shocked on Tuesday morning when a scuffle between EFF members and a woman in her fifties resulted in a firearm being drawn.

Both parties were arrested but charges were not being pursued by either.

Police Spokesperson Colonel Priscilla Naidu says EFF members, however, had a change of heart and returned to the Walmer police station at 3 pm on Tuesday to lay a charge against the 52-year-old woman.

In the video, EFF members can be seen as insulting and harassing the woman until she drew a firearm.

EFF members are protesting against Clicks following a racist hair advert published on their website.

Meanwhile, retailer Clicks has obtained a court order against the Economic Freedom Fighters after several stores were damaged during an anti-racism protest on Monday.

In Tuesday's order, the High Court interdicted the EFF from intimidating and threatening Clicks staff members or their customers.

According to police the firearm used in the incident is licensed.
