Bloemfontein -

A group of ANC delegates from Limpopo on Tuesday mocked those who opposed President Jacob Zuma's re-election at the party's Mangaung conference.

The Zuma supporters from Limpopo rolled their hands, as is done in soccer matches to call for a player's substitution, and added a thumbs-down to it.

Earlier, Zuma won a second term as African National Congress leader on Tuesday.

He received 2983 votes against Kgalema Motlanthe's 991. - Sapa
