EFF launch North West manifesto

Mahikeng - Economic Freedom Fighters members filed into the Montshioa Stadium in Mahikeng on Saturday ahead of the party's provincial manifesto launch.

"Julius Malema ore rapelele, shawara oa resokodisa [Julius Malema pray for us, shower is giving us problems]," they sang as they filed into the stadium.

Two white tents were erected near the stage where the VIPs would be seated.

"We are painting this area red," Rapula Sedone from Reagile near Koster said.

He said he travelled over night to be in Mahikeng to be part of the manifesto celebrations.

"It is important that we take this province in May. The launch is the foundation to that victory."

EFF leader Julius Malema was expected to launch the party's provincial manifesto later on Saturday.

The party is calling for the nationalisation of mines and banks and a regulated minimum wage for all workers which will see mineworkers taking home R12 500.
