EFF supporters arrive for party final rally in Polokwane

Local artists are entertaining the crowd as they wait for Malema to address them.

Party Secretary General Godrich Gardee says he believes the EFF has enough support to take Polokwane from the ANC.

The EFF says it's the only party that has a plan to address the land issue and will use its municipal power should it win on Wednesday.

Gardee says land redistribution is top priority for the EFF.

"We are promising our people expropriation of land without compensation. The municipalities have that power and they just have to follow due processes."

Some supporters say they believe the EFF is their last hope at an improved quality of life.

"I know that the ANC is now too corrupt and EFF is our last hope."

Supporters there say they are looking forward to seeing Malema in person today.

Last night, Malema and the party leadership hosted a gala dinner for the business sector to encourage investment and partnership with the party.

Malema said the 2016 elections are not just about winning municipalities but for the party to grow its numbers leading up to the 2019 national polls.

The EFF leader said the party would like to partner with the business sector.

He added the only way to address unemployment and inequality is to redistribute the land.
