The Economic Freedom Fighters says it’s all systems go for their manifesto launch in Soshanguve outside Pretoria.
The party is expecting thousands of supporters from all nine provinces to fill the Soshanguve stadium.
Speaking at a gala dinner on Friday night, EFF leader Julius Malema said his party remains the only one committed to fighting white monopoly capital.
Malema said: ‘We are a party that fights for black people and therefore we do not apologise about that.”
“We want to crush the current arrangement and introduce a completely new system which will benefit the people of South Africa.”
Malema said that many people will eat humble pie when they see the red barrettes colouring the whole of Tshwane in red.
He added that even the ruling party which launched its manifesto two weeks ago will be shocked.
“Well, the President, when he watches Giant Stadium he will think that Moses Mabhida was a picnic. It’s going to be a big occasion; it’s going to be a historic moment; that’s where the programme to change government of South Africa will start from and when you look at it as a sitting President, obviously your stomach is going to turn. You’ll be shaken because a message will be sent that now the red sea has arrived.”
