More than 400 public representatives will miss the festivities of the Economic Freedom Fighters’ (EFF) 10th Anniversary celebration on Saturday.

Yesterday, the party announced that it has banned 428 representatives for failing to organise transport to ferry members to attend the rally.

Members of the EFF from all nine provinces will paint the town red as they intend to fill the FNB stadium, which takes over 94 000 people.

The party has made public the list of names of the people who will be barred from the celebration.

They include several EFF Members of Parliament.

The party says a directive was given to all party leaders to arrange transport for the constituencies they claim to represent.

According to EFF’s National spokesperson, Leigh-Anne Mathys, the representatives were given six months to organise transport.

“Further consequences will be against them and all those who have procured a certain amount of transportation, but did not meet the requisite target.”

The decision by the EFF has been met with mixed reactions from members of the public.
