Johannesburg - The Economic Freedom Fighters rally at the
Lucas Moripe Stadium in Atteridgeville west of Pretoria on Sunday will go ahead
as planned, the party said on Friday.
"The meeting has approved the event," said
spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi.
The EFF and the City of Tshwane met on Friday to deal
with outstanding logistics relating to the rally.
The EFF planned to host a final election rally at the
stadium on Sunday.
The city cancelled the EFF application to use the stadium
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.
