Johannesburg - Vetting people coming to the ANC's final election rally at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on Sunday to prevent President Jacob Zuma being booed is impossible, the party said on Friday.

Vetting those who were expected to attend would be a complex exercise and impossible, African National Congress secretary general Gwede Mantashe said.

“Booing is part of our everyday life, we deal with it every day,” he said.

The ANC is hosting a Siyanqoba victory rally on Sunday at the FNB stadium to encourage eligible voters to vote for the party.

Supporters would also be informed of the party's service delivery over the past 20 years.

Zuma was expected to address the rally at 1pm.

Zuma was booed last year at former president Nelson Mandela's memorial service, and this year in Limpopo during the election campaign.

The rally would be broadcast live on SABC, eNCA and ANN7. - Sapa
