Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma has received unwavering support from the ANC Youth League.
A handful of Young Lions in Gauteng, including some newly elected cabinet ministers and current ministers, gathered at the Germiston Stadium in Ekurhuleni on Tuesday evening to speak up on the recent cabinet reshuffle and against those they say have turned their back towards the party. But while rally was scheduled to start at 3pm, proceedings only kicked off three hours later.
Zuma who was also expected to attend did not arrive as he was still held up at the ANC's Head Quaters at Luthuli House where the National Working Committee sad and deliberated on the current state of politics and crisis facing the country.
Supporters who had been waiting for long were treated to lunch and music. They sang struggle songs and chanted "Zuma My President."
A handful of Cosas members were also present and wore shirts with Zuma's face written "Freedom Without Economic Freedom is not Free."
