Orania founder Professor Carel Boshoff IV, and his son, Orania mayor Carel Boshoff V, welcomed Zuma at the community hall next to where the helicopter landed.

Zuma was welcomed by schoolchildren dressed mainly in orange, forming a guard of honour.

Carel Boshoff snr introduced community leaders to the president before they went into a private meeting. During this time a group of children went to the helicopter and questioned the pilot about flying an aircraft.

After the meeting Zuma was expected to visit housing projects and several agricultural sites in Orania.
