Johannesburg - Democratic Alliance leader Helen Zille arrived at Park Station in Johannesburg on a train from Soweto on Tuesday morning.

A group of supporters welcomed her with praise songs and ululation as she emerged from the station.

Most supporters wore DA T-shirts and sang in the busy streets near the station. Some carried DA posters bearing Zille's face or a "Vote for Jobs" slogan.

Hawkers had to move their stands to make way for the crowd. Zille spoke to a woman selling vegetables, greeting her by the hand, and gave her a pamphlet.

"I like your blue tent", she said pointing to the woman's gazebo.

Some commuters followed the crowd and took photographs. The group moved towards busy Noord Street singing in Sesotho that they would change President Jacob Zuma's government.
