Zuma stops shoppers at East Rand mall

2014-04-25 17:07
Tsakane - Shopping came to halt at Tsakane Mall in the East Rand on Friday when ANC President Jacob Zuma visited the area as part of his campaign for the 7 May elections.

He started his day in Duduza where he met mostly elderly people.

In Tsakane, shoppers gathered around the party's truck to listen to Zuma speak.

"I came here to remind you that we are celebrating 20 years of democracy on 27 April and that on 7 May we are voting," he said.

"Those who undermine the African National Congress should be scared."

As Zuma was finished speaking, the crowd asked him to sing "Mshini wami" (bring me my machine gun), and cheered and ululated as Zuma hit the notes of the song.

While addressing the media in Duduza, Zuma said Gauteng belonged to his party and no one could wrestle it from them.

He said he was pleased with how the elderly were pledging their support for the ANC.

"This was a confirmation that this is an organisation of the people," said Zuma.

He said the visit to the East Rand was special as struggle heroes Oliver Tambo and Chris Hani were buried there.

"When we are here, we get inspiration. When we are here in the East Rand, we are at the home of the ANC," he said.
