Guard of honour for Holimisa

2014-04-26 16:34

Mahikeng - United Democratic Movement leader Bantu Holomisa was well received in Freedom Park near Rustenburg on Saturday.

About 2 000 party supporters dressed in yellow T-shirts ululated and clapped hands as they welcomed him.

Marshals formed a guard of honour as he walked into the tent.

He was in Rustenburg to canvass votes for his party in the 7 May election.

Most of the people living in Freedom Park near Impala Platinum mines were believed to be from his home province of the Eastern Cape.

The large crowd wielding Holomisa election posters had been waiting for his arrival since 11:00.



Take a look at News24's map to see how the UDM did in previous elections.
