Cheers for Zuma at FNB Stadium

2014-05-04 13:37
Johannesburg - Thousands of ANC supporters erupted into cheers when President Jacob Zuma arrived at the FNB Stadium in Soweto on Sunday.

Children dressed in khaki uniforms, known as Masopa-tsela (show the way), held ANC flags as they formed a guard of honour.

Zuma, dressed in a yellow T-shirt and leather ANC jacket walked onto the stage with both hands raised, smiling and waving at the screaming crowd.

ANC head of elections Malusi Gigaba chanted "Zuma, Zuma, Zuma" over the microphone.

The president walked up and down a ramp erected in front of the stage, greeting the audience.

The 95 000-seater calabash stadium was filled to capacity on Sunday for the African National Congress' s Siyanqoba rally.

Three overflow areas outside the stadium were also full.

Zuma will deliver the keynote address at the rally which would be live streamed to other ANC rallies around the country.

The last time Zuma addressed a crowd at the FNB Stadium, during Nelson Mandela’s memorial, he was booed.
