Scramble for ANC shirts at voting station

2014-05-07 14:57

Pretoria - Several ANC supporters jostled to get their hands on party T-shirts outside a polling station at the Hamilton Primary School in central Pretoria on Wednesday.

Motorists driving along Visagie Street hooted as people rushed to get T-shirts being dished out by a man in the middle of the street.

Thekiso Ndabane said he needed the yellow ANC T-shirt, emblazoned with a photo of a smiling former president Nelson Mandela, to prove where his loyalty lay.

"Today is a day of T-shirts. When I walk in the street I want everyone to notice," he said.

Some T-shirts sported an image of a smiling President Jacob Zuma's face.

A few metres away from the ANC camp, the Democratic Alliance and Economic Freedom Fighters had set up chairs and were talking to voters.

The scorching sun after lunch did not deter voters who had formed a winding queue to cast their ballots.

Numerous cars passing on the street were branded with different political party posters and playing loud music.
