The area around the Sekhukhune Stadium in Tembisa, east of Johannesburg, is a sea of red as thousands of Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) supporters stream into the stadium for the party’s Siyabonga Rally.

The EFF is holding the event to thank its supporters for its win across the country which saw it garner the support of just over 10% from 8% in the 2016 local elections.

Roads are congested in and around the Sekhukhune stadium as party faithful on foot and in buses and cars make their way to the EFF’s rally.

Police are keeping a watchful eye on proceedings.

The party’s bash will see attendees treated to a feast with five cows slaughtered on Friday. Party leader Julius Malema is expected to address the crowds after midday.
