EFF members gather for North West march

2014-02-12 11:35

Mahikeng - Scores of Economic Freedom Fighters supporters gathered in Makapanstad in North West on Wednesday morning ahead of a planned march to the Moretele municipal offices.

Several police vehicles, including a Nyala, were parked near the crowd dressed in the EFF's trademark red berets and T-shirts.

A man led the singing, using a public address system mounted on a bakkie.

"Juju rea le wena (Julius we are go with you)," the crowd sang, referring to party leader Julius Malema.

He was expected to lead the march.

Some of the protesters used umbrellas to shield themselves from the scorching sun.
