Johannesburg - ANC President Jacob Zuma received a warm welcome in Kwa-Thema as he continued a door-to-door campaign on the East Rand on Friday.

Supporters cheered and chanted as Zuma got out of his car. Pupils still in their school uniforms screamed and jumped high as Zuma waved to the crowd.

Supporters wearing African National Congress attire with flags in hand sang and danced while Zuma entered houses to speak to residents.

They were singing “Siyaya, so nqoba,” (We are going to win).

Zuma has been campaigning in the East Rand since the morning. He mostly met senior citizens and encouraged them to vote on May 7.

He was scheduled to visit Tembisa for a mini rally later in the afternoon.
