Johannesburg - A meeting between the Economic Freedom
Fighters (EFF) and the City of Tshwane regarding the use of Lucas Moripe Stadium
was under way in Pretoria on Friday, the party said.
"The meeting is still on. The rally will continue on
Sunday, as scheduled. Nothing in the meeting can stop the rally," said
spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi.
He said an update would be provided later on Friday
The city cancelled the EFF application to use the stadium
in Atteridgeville for its final election rally, after the party apparently
failed to attend a scheduled meeting of the joint operations committee to
present its full operational safety and event plans, as required by the Sports
and Recreational Events Act.
In terms of the conditions of use and rental of the
stadium, all parties are required to provide the city with the appropriate
approvals to cover crowd control, emergency medical service on site and
transportation, an appropriate security operation plan and disaster management
plan, among others.
The EFF took the council to court after it cancelled a
provisional agreement concluded with the EFF, on 23 April, for hiring the
stadium.Download the app by visiting one of these app stores.
