CAPE TOWN - Various Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) supporters who are gathering at the Mandela Park Stadium in Khayelitsha have raised questions on whether or not the party's leader

Julius Malema will actually show up.

The controversial EFF leader was a no show on two occasions this week where he was meant to kick-start his party's electioneering campaign in the Western Cape.

There's uncertainty at the stadium as to whether Malema will show up for his party's provincial manifesto launch.

Party officials say Malema has requested to be informed when the stadium is full.

A few hundred supporters have turned out so far and are keeping themselves busy by singing.

Supporters of the EFF in Mfuleni and Manenberg were left disappointed when Malema failed to arrive to campaign in the areas earlier this week.

Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema on Tuesday lashed out at the judge who dismissed an urgent application lodged by the party.

Malema's party wanted to challenge the R600,000 fee charged by the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) for party's to register their candidate lists.
