Julius Malema EFF leader announced last week, that his part will organise to Nathi Mthethwa office to demand the immediately return of fans at Sporting events across the country. Currently only 2000 fans are allowed at sport event. This is despite having stadiums that can accommodate thousands of fans.
Responding in a long press release on Wednesday morning. Mthethwa said EFF decision to march to the department of sport is curious and misguided.
No amount of irrational, Vulgarity or grandstanding will intimidate the minister. His department or government into populist and irresponsible decision making and actions. The a country Covid-19 response strategy hailed across the world, the EFF is ill-advised to assume its march will bear any fruit, said the statement.
Since Malema call for fans to return to stadiums, stating political parties have been holding rallies with big crowd's. Some Premier Soccer League club boss have supported his stance. John Commits of Cape Town City, Sandile Zungu of Amazulu and Davids Magashoa of Swallows FC have all come out in support of fans returning to stadiums.
They also complained that the clubs have lost a lot of revenue, especial when they play with big teams. The PSL has been quite on this matter. Mthethwa also said he is surprised by the EFF stance because they should know the decision to reopen stadiums for fans does not lie with his department.
