EFF leader Julius Malema received a heroes welcome from Vaal University of Technology (VUT) students who have been waiting for his arrival since 4pm on Tuesday afternoon.  

Malema is expected to address the Student Representative Council (SRC) rally.

The SRC elections are expected to take place on Wednesday. Dressed in the famous EFF red regalia, students are dancing along to music being played from a truck where Malema is set to make his address from. The rain that has been pouring down for almost an hour now has not deterred students from coming through.

Apart from the pending SRC elections, Malema is also expected to speak about the controversial student financial aid scheme issue which led to student strikes at the university in recent months.

Just  a stone throw away, Sasco members are also having a rally of their  own.
