DA are ‘daydreamers’ – Zuma

2011-05-09 09:03

The Democratic Alliance are “daydreamers” if they think they are going to win Johannesburg and Tshwane, President Jacob Zuma said this morning.

“Of course the ANC’s going to win, it’s a well known fact,” Zuma said while on the campaign trail for the ANC at Johannesburg’s Park Station.

“We (the ANC) are reaching every corner of the country, we are reaching every place.”

He arrived at the station two hours later than expected, and was greeted by a crowd of ANC supporters who danced and sang their way into the station.

The gathered crowd pushed and shoved, many trying to take a picture of the president with their cellphones.

Police and journalists were scattered among the throng, trying to keep up as Zuma made his way around the station, greeting commuters.

Speaking from a raised platform, Zuma urged the crowd to vote for the ANC on May 18, before breaking into his trademark song Awulethu’ uMshini Wam’ (bring me my machine gun).

He then greeted commuters at an adjoining taxi rank before being whisked away in his official car.
