Pretoria - Members of Julius Malema's EFF marched along Stanza Bopape street, in front of the Union Buildings, where former president Nelson Mandela's body was lying in state on Thursday.
The group of more than 100 people congregated near the lawns of the Union Buildings before making a U-turn.
Several police vehicles arrived at the scene, adjacent to the Sheraton Hotel, and accompanied them as they headed back into Pretoria central.
Members of the police tactical response team were also there.
Several of the people waiting to see Mandela's body ran towards the group of Economic Freedom Fighters.
