Bloemfontein -

ANC President Jacob Zuma, dressed in a leather jacket, arrived to deafening cheers at the ruling party's national elective conference in Mangaung on Sunday afternoon.

Delegates stamped their feet, cheered and sang as Zuma, dressed in the African National Congress colours, shared a few words with Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe before taking his seat.

Shortly before his arrival, ANC chairwoman Baleka Mbete asked delegates to settle down.

Delegates started chanting, “Zuma, Zuma”, whistling and holding up two fingers, signalling for him to get a second term. - Sapa
