Zuma on campaign trail in Duduza

Johannesburg - African National Congress president Jacob Zuma was welcomed to Duduza in the East Rand with songs and cheers by party supporters on Friday.

While his loyal supporters had their fists high in the air, a small group had placards expressing their dissatisfaction with services in their area.

One placard read: "No vote" while the other read "we want you Mr Zuma to come and see our Sefihliwe area in Zamani."

Residents said they were staying in shacks and had no services in the area.

Nomfundo Samka accused local councillors of only giving jobs to their friends.

"We live in shacks and they have neglected us. We are poor. Our kids smoke nyaope because parents can't provide. Our kids have qualifications but can't get jobs."

"They are only giving jobs to their friends," she said.

Pinkie Mphuthi said nothing was done about sewage blockages

"[The] councillor doesn't give us feedback. They treat us like dirt," she said.

Nala street was filled with people as Zuma started his door-to-door campaign.

Dressed in a yellow shirt and a leather jacket, Zuma waved to loud ululations.

Police had to fend off a large crowd of people trying to get a glimpse of the president and take photographs of him.

Zuma and provincial chairperson Paul Mashatile, along with other officials, were expected to meet with senior citizens and conduct a walkabout at a minibus taxi rank.
