Dozens of activists from South Africa's radical leftwing Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) party picket outside stores of a leading retail pharmacy on Monday over a controversial "racist" hair advertisement which described black hair as "dull" and white hair as "normal". The company, which boasts of more than 500 branches across South Africa has apologised and pulled down the adverts. The EFF wants the chain shut for five days.
