Thembalethu Buthelezi looks on as her fellow EFF fighters dance.
Young and old were bussed in to the EFF’s “historical manifesto launch” at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on an overcast Saturday morning.
By 10:00, the lower-tier seats were almost packed – a signal that by the end of the day, the party would have packed the 56 000-seater stadium.
National chairperson Ntombovuyo Mente told News24 that the party had been mobilising for the manifesto launch in KwaZulu-Natal since 5 January.
