EFF to pay funeral costs of supporter who fell to death during their 10th anniversary

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has offered to pay all the costs of funeral arrangements of its supporter who fell to his death in FNB Stadium in Johannesburg during their 10th anniversary.

The supporter allegedly fell from level five to level two at the FNB Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

“The EFF is aware of the unfortunate passing of an attendee to the 10th Anniversary Rally at FNB Stadium, who according to reports, fell to his death on the day of the event from one of the stands. We send our deepest condolences to the family and loved ones of the deceased, and pray that his soul rests in eternal peace.

“The leadership of the EFF will visit the family of the deceased, and take care of all funeral arrangements in honour of his life, as someone who formed part of the historic celebration of our movement,” the party said in a statement on Sunday evening.

It is believed the man was dancing when he fell over from level five in the stands of the stadium.

Gauteng police confirmed that an inquest docket into the supporters’ death was opened and police were investigating the circumstances surrounding his death.
