The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) will hold a thanksgiving rally or "Siyabonga rally" tomorrow. Ahead of this event, the party held a drive-by where five cows were slaughtered to be served at the rally.

The rally's purpose is to create an opportunity for the EFF to thank its voters after the local government election, which was held at the beginning of the month.

Julius Malema, the party's president, will lead the ceremony, which will be held in Tembisa, on the East Rand of Gauteng, SABC News reports.

The party’s Commander in Chief headed to Twitter to share a snap of their proceedings, saying they are slaughtering cows. In addition, Juju says one of the cows they are slaughtering is the one they received from the late AmaZulu King Goodwill Zwelithini back in 2017.

Malema says the bull was given to them as a gift and they will share it with the community or the children who are under the king’s leadership. He wrote:

“It was in 2017 when our father, The late Amazulu Nation King, His Majesty King Goodwill Zwelithini, gave us a Bull. I'm happy it was the first one to be slaughtered today, and we will share it with Abantwana be’Nkosi tomorrow. Bayede.”
