The EFF has warned their supporters against an alleged plot from the ANCYL to use its supporters to vandalise the Rea Vaya Bus stations in Soweto.

A screenshot went viral on Twitter of a user warning one of the party supporters that ANCYL supporters in Orlando East, in Soweto, were paying people R1 000 to vandalise the bus station.

The anonymous whistle-blower also said the perpetrators were told to wear EFF T-shirts and beret. The person claimed the job was offered to someone he knows.

The ANC recently launched its manifesto in Nelson Mandela Bay with empty seats, failing to fill the stadium, while the DA last week had 20 000 supporters in Johannesburg’s Rand Stadium, which has a capacity of 30 000.

Ndlozi could not say how many supporters the party was expecting at the EFF’s manifesto launch, in Orlando, but said they were expecting thousands of supporters.

EFF national spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said there will be no room to make anyone inferior. Ndlozi said all supporters would feel important as they are the integral part of the party.“This is the festival of the poor. Every time the EFF does an event, it’s the festival of the poor,” said Ndlozi. “Our people come to affirm the EFF.”

“This is a historic launch, because it’s the first time the EFF will be participating in the local government elections.
