"In Menlyn [in Pretoria] protesters also managed to enter the shop and threw clothing around".
People angered by a "racist" advert for H&M have ransacked some of the clothing chain's stores in South Africa. At this stage nothing has been reported to have been stolen.
Gauteng police have confirmed that they fired rubber bullets at the East Rand Mall in Boksburg to disperse Economic Freedom Fighters members who staged protests and vandalised several H&M stores around the province against a monkey sweater advert.
The police's Lungelo Dlamini says they are now monitoring the situation in various malls. "No arrests have been effected up to so far", Dlamini said.More news: Arda Turan joins Istanbul Basaksehir from Barcelona on loan deal
In one video, claimed to have been taken at the Menlyn Park store, one of red shirted activists is seen trashing displays, kicking over and pulling down clothes rails as well as pushing over mannequins.
Disoloane also issued an ultimatum to the shop management, demanding that they force H&M to close.
The image advertising the £7.99 jumper was removed from H&M's USA and United Kingdom websites shortly after the outrage broke and the retailer quickly issued a statement apologising to "anyone it may have offended".
Ndebele said "normal trading" had resumed in the mall. "If they are not going to close the shop, they must just know we are going to be here nearly every day, starting from today", he said. "We are going to be here, but the security has told us everything is fine", he said.More news: Do What Institutional Investors Does: CenturyLink, Inc. (CTL), Apple Inc. (AAPL)
