While Oscar Pistorius stood in the Pretoria High Court, members of the EFF party gathered half a block away to protest the South African election boards’ R600,000 candidate deposit fee. the up-and-coming elections will be contested in May this year.  Standing in the pouring rain the EFF cleverly made use of the international media, present for the trial.
