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.
