Cape Town - Dozens of supporters have started gathering outside Parliament in support of President Jacob Zuma.

The Nation Assembly is due to debate a motion of no confidence in Zuma, again, with official opposition calling for the African National Congress to “do the right thing” and vote him out.

The supporters came in taxis and were in high spirits while proclaiming their loyalty to the president.

Supporters sang “we love you Zuma”, and danced outside Parliament, while waiting for the sitting to start.

Meanwhile, various parties were locked in caucus meetings on Thursday, with Zuma attending the ANC caucus meeting in Parliament.

While MPs would not be drawn on the meeting and the discussions around the motion, they were in jovial spirits as they left the meeting, two hours before the sitting.
