Crowds gathering on south lawn of Union Buildings.

Pretoria - The ruling African National Congress was well represented at the Union Buildings in Pretoria on Saturday ahead of the inauguration of Jacob Zuma for a second term in office.

Party members and supporters were wearing T-shirts bearing the faces of former president Nelson Mandela and Zuma.

Some carried ANC flags while others had party logos painted on their faces.

Musicians entertained a growing crowd on the lawn outside the building ahead of the ceremony, which is scheduled to begin around 11am.

People sat on the grass while others danced to Maskandi music (zulu traditional music). - Sapa
