The stadium was packed to capacity with supporters spilling over on the pitch in front of the stage.
Thousands dressed in red EFF T-shirts and berets chanted “Juju Juju”. The red EFF berets are sold for R100 each and not handed out for free as other political parties do.
The exited crowd chanted: “He is going to Parliament, make way for him”. They waved umbrellas, posters and banners.
EFF supporters said the ANC is not a threat as they use rented crowds.
