Malema given rousing welcome in Tembisa

2014-02-22 13:15
Johannesburg - The 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 crowd dressed in red EFF t-shirts and berets chanted "Juju Juju".

They sang, "He is going to Parliament, make way for him".

The stadium was packed to capacity with some people standing on the pitch in front of the stage.

Umbrellas, posters and banners were hoisted high in the air. Some were walking around with a coffin made out of boxes to symbolise the burying of other parties.

The stadium is just a kilometre away from the Makhulong stadium where the ANCYL was holding an election festival.

EFF supporter Brian Shivambu said the African National Congress Youth League was not a threat.

"Real people are here and those there are young children and rented crowds."

Another supporter accused the ANC of trying to create tension.
