EFF leader Julius Malema has arrived at a stadium in Rakgwatha outside Lebowakgomo in Limpopo where he will address a rally on Sunday afternoon.

The IEC will run a by-election for ward 14 in the Lepelle Nkumpi Municipality on Wednesday, following the death of a ward councillor.

Those who are at the stadium to listen to Malema say they hope that the EFF wins the ward and begin to deliver basic services.

“The ruling party that is in government now does not care about ward 14 because we have got problems of lights, our roads when there is rain you can’t go anywhere, you can’t go to work tomorrow because the transport the buses cannot get into the village and it has been a long time for the ruling party but it does not do anything. Right now as residents we do not have water, electricity and RDP houses; they allocate RDP houses and electricity according to political party affiliation.”
