H&M store trashed over 'monkey' advert

The protesters dispersed at around 14:00, according to Brooklyn police spokesperson Captain Anton Breedt.

In Menlyn, protestors had also managed to enter the shop and threw clothing around. At this stage nothing has been reported to have been stolen. "No arrests have been effected up to so far", Dlamini said.

"We are here to tell them".

On the other side of Pretoria, police officers were on standby at the Kolonnade Mall, as the EFF protests targeted different shopping centres.

"We are not going to allow anyone to use the colour of our skin to humiliate us, to exclude us", he added. The retail chain apologised to customers via its Twitter account and said the garment was no longer for sale.

H&M had issued an apology in response to complaints about the hoodie and its model. "In terms of accepting or not accepting your apology, it is not my prerogative".

She said the hoodie was "one of hundreds of outfits my son has modelled", and urged people to "stop crying wolf all the time".

Protesters were wearing red and dancing and singing outside department stores. One person reported seeing EFF supporters looting the store before police arrived, evacuated the store and closed it, with some protesters still inside.

H&M has yet to issue a statement over the chaos, but social media is engulfed with both support and condemnation for the violence, with many in South Africa echoing Shivambu's praise for the "radical action".

Ndebele said "normal trading" had resumed in the mall.

Innocent shoppers were forced to flee as activists swept through the stores, which included Africa's flagship H&M stores in the upmarket suburb of Sandton, Johannesburg.
