Pretoria - Several ANC supporters jostled to get their hands on party T-shirts outside a polling station at the Hamilton Primary School in central Pretoria on Wednesday.
Motorists driving along Visagie Street hooted as people rushed to get T-shirts being dished out by a man in the middle of the street.
Thekiso Ndabane said he needed the yellow ANC T-shirt, emblazoned with a photo of a smiling former president Nelson Mandela, to prove where his loyalty lay.
"Today is a day of T-shirts. When I walk in the street I want everyone to notice," he said.
Some T-shirts sported an image of a smiling President Jacob Zuma's face.
A few metres away from the ANC camp, the Democratic Alliance and Economic Freedom Fighters had set up chairs and were talking to voters.
