Nkandla - President Jacob Zuma cast his vote amidst an ecstatic reception at the Ntolwane Primary School in KwaNxamalala, Nkandla, on Wednesday morning.
Ululating crowds jostled to get up close to the president and raised their cellphones and tablets to snap photos as the president stood in the voting queue with ordinary South Africans at the polling station.
Wearing a lightly checked cream jacket and pale mauve shirt, he was full of smiles for the Independent Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC) staff as he slotted his ballot papers into the correct boxes.
After he had made his mark, he told journalists waiting outside that his vote was secret, before chuckling heartily.
“The results will be very good,” he told the media, who were scrambling to get a comment from him. - Sapa
