Reading Time: < 1 minute

Thousands of Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) supporters are expected to converge on the FNB Stadium in Soweto for the party’s 10th Anniversary celebrations.

The rally is a culmination of a number of events including a carnival last weekend in Alexandra, Johannesburg, a public lecture addressed by Kenyan academic Professor Patrick Lumumba, as well as a commemoration of the 2012 massacre in Marikana earlier this week.

Proceedings are expected to kick off at noon with EFF president Julius Malema scheduled to speak at 2 o’clock.

He is expected to trace the party’s progression from its establishment in 2013 in Soweto to it becoming the third largest party in the country commanding approximately 10% of the popular vote.

The crowds will also be entertained by popular musicians including Makadzi, Ami Faku, Emtee and Young Stunna amongst others following the official programme.

Call for global peace

Malema has called for global peace particularly in Africa, urging Africans not to hate and kill each other and instead must ensure that the focus is given to challenges facing the continent such as high level of unemployment and degenerating of economies.

Hosting Ambassadors from different countries to a breakfast in Pretoria, Malema says the world is in crisis and calls for an end to sanction against Zimbabwe.

“We are calling an end to ideological sanctions by the nations in the west…we do not agree with the government of Zimbabwe or the president of Zimbabwe but the people of Zimbabwe are the once suffering under these sanctions.”
