ANC supporters wait for Zuma

Brits - ANC supporters gathered in Brits, North West, on Tuesday morning ahead of the arrival of President Jacob Zuma.

Zuma was scheduled to campaign for the ANC in Madibeng.

Three minibus taxis branded in ANC colours were parked outside the municipal building. A Volkswagen Beetle in ANC colours was parked at the corner of Van Velden and Murray streets.

A police helicopter hovered above.

"The ANC has delivered a lot in 20 years. Our people have houses and infrastructure is better than before," said supporter Paul Shilenge.

Clad in a white ANC T-shirt bearing Zuma's face, Shilenge said Zuma was there to "check" if the ANC still commanded support in Madibeng.

"The people are waiting for him in Letlhabile and Sonop."

He said the ANC-led government had provided houses and other basic needs for the people.

"The ANC is the party to go for," he said.
