Former president Jacob Zuma on Monday afternoon cast his vote at the Ntolwane Primary School in Nkandla.

Wearing his trademark black long-sleeve shirt with green and brown leaves, Zuma waved at the crowd outside the voting station as he made his way inside.

Zuma, who looked relaxed, did not speak to reporters who had camped outside the voting station since the morning.

The former president, who lives in ward 13, which is currently under the IFP, recently encouraged his supporters to vote for the ANC.

This was despite the fact that Zuma’s backers had blamed the ANC leadership for his arrest and incarceration in July.
