Johannesburg - The FNB Stadium in Soweto was a sea of yellow, green and black as thousands of ANC supporters came out to attend the party's Siyanqoba rally three days before the elections.
The almost 95 000-seater calabash stadium was almost filled to capacity with people of all ages singing and dancing as local musicians entertained them.
People waved African National Congress flags while others held up homemade placards which read “Run Zille run” and “Run Malema run”.
The crowd shouted “Viva Zuma Viva. Halala ANC, Halala”.
A group of young men carried around a cardboard box in the shape of a coffin and the words “RIP EFF” painted on the side.
There was a second cardboard coffin painted blue with the words “RIP DA”.
President Jacob Zuma is expected to address the rally later in the day. - Sapa
