Joburg Metrobus on Monday apologised to commuters for a delay in bus services, following the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) manifesto launch on Sunday.
Metrobus was unable to access Gandhi Square on Monday morning because the EFF left its tents behind after their weekend rally. In an urgent passenger notice, Metrobus said it was “unable to access Gandhi Square this morning, due to tents left behind after a rally over the weekend”.
Metrobus urged passengers “to walk around the Square to access buses to various destinations”.

On Sunday, the party launched its manifesto, with party leader Julius Malema blasting the “incapable local government.”
According to Malema, the party’s manifesto is “based on several observations we have made regarding the situation of local government in South Africa.” He stated that the party’s manifesto is built on the seven pillars of economic freedom, which include land expropriation without compensation and free and high-quality education.
