Zuma draws crowds in Durban

2014-04-09 22:38

Durban - The party faithful turned out in droves as President Jacob Zuma toured several areas of greater Durban on Wednesday where he campaigned for the ANC ahead of the 7 May elections.

Zuma did door-to-door campaigns near Hammarsdale and toured the Hammarsdale Junction Mall before addressing about 5 000 people in Mariannridge and finally addressing a large number of people in a church in the city's Austerville area.

In Mariannridge his fans and African National Congress supporters waited for more than two hours before he arrived. Pensioners who were out in the sun were moved into the marquee tent that had been set up for the VIPs.

In Austerville Zuma said that there was no choice, but to vote for the ANC as none of the other parties had ever been in government.

"I don't know how trustworthy they are, that's why I can't vote for them. They promise us, all of us everything. They know as they ask for votes they are not going to win," he said.

"Even if they say the ANC makes empty promises, its actually propaganda. They know they are not in government and they know they are not going to win therefore they know what they are saying are empty promises."

He said that many had left the ANC, but that nothing had come of them.

"It's cold outside the ANC," Zuma said to loud cheers.
