The stadium was packed to capacity as loyal supporters arrived in droves to celebrate.
Julius Malema was scheduled to make the keynote address at the event.
In a province known as an ANC stronghold, the celebration proved the significant support the EFF has in the area.
National spokesperson Dr Mbuyiseni Ndlozi commente don Friday night that the outcome of the 2019 elections would see the EFF in government even if it was in one province or a metro municipality.
“Next year’s election are not local government elections obviously, there are no mayors that will be running around asking to be elected. But it’s a watershed election, it is as significant as 1994 elections because there will be a constitutional amendment.”
Some Tweeps offered their support of the event.
The EFF are taking this 5-year milestone seriously and enjoying their success.
There were epic performances to wow the crowd.
