Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma visited a voting station at the Ntolwane Primary School in Nkandla, KwaZulu-Natal, on Saturday to see whether he is still a registered voter, SABC news reported.

Zuma was joined by his daughter, Msholozi Zuma, who wanted to re-register.

A group of African National Congress supporters greeted him as he walked into the voting station. Zuma then checked his name, which was found on the voter's roll, the broadcaster reported.

However there were issues with registering his daughter, as her ID had Swaziland as her country of birth.

Zuma reportedly had to explain that she was born in exile and that she had voted before. She was only changing her voting area from Cape Town to Nkandla.

The SABC reported that after an Independent Electoral Commission official called his superiors, he was able to register her.
