EFF supporters pack Tembisa stadium to capacity

eff_tembisaThe Mehlareng stadium in Tembisa, east of Johannesburg erupted with applause when Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema arrived on Saturday for the party’s manifesto launch.

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.
