The George Municipality has advised residents that traffic will be affected by a planned protest march by the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) on Thursday.

"The march will then continue along Davidson Road to the York Street circle, and down York Street to the parking area in front of the Civil Engineering Directorate (old Town Hall) to hand over another memorandum."
