The NFP was in the area to campaign ahead of the May 7 general elections.

The party's Gauteng chairman, Bheki Gumbi, told the public broadcaster the NFP was impressed by how people welcomed them into their homes.

“We were there to do a door-to-door campaign. We are happy that all sectors of the community welcomed us and we did door-to-door in different wards.

“We end up our rally in Mandela (Stadium) where we welcomed 66 members led by women's league members from the ANC.” - Sapa
