JOHANNESBURG - Scores of people are beginning to gather at the Mothutlung community hall for the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) march today.

The EFF is expected to hand over a memorandum of grievances related to service delivery to the Madibeng local municipality.

Party members from all 36 wards of the municipality are expected to march to the municipal offices.

EFF leader Julius Malema will lead the march to the office of newly appointed Mayor Matshidiso Mangoathe.

In Mothutlung scores of EFF members have already started gathering and are waiting for buses to transport them to the Brits City Centre.

Most residents in Mothutlung were without access to running water and sanitation for close to three months and residents want the situation to change for the better.
