JOHANNESBURG - Democratic Alliance ( DA) leader Helen Zille says people should ask themselves if their lives have changed over the past five years when they vote on Wednesday.

She has wrapped up the party's campaign at a rally at the Northgate dome in Johannesburg.

Addressing thousands of supporters, Zille said the African National Congress ( ANC) was not what it used to be.

"Under President Jacob Zuma, the ANC has changed. Its leaders believe they will rule forever."

She added that her party was growing.

"The DA is strong; we have never been stronger. The DA is for all South Africans; we are growing in every community, in every province, in every village."

The DA leader said people needed to remember government worked for them, and that it was hired and fired, by the voting process.

Meanwhile, the African Christian Democratic Party ( ACDP) is also holding its final election rally in Atteridgeville in Pretoria today.

A few thousand supporters have filled the Saulsville arena.

The ACDP's Palesa Yates says they have received overwhelming support.

"The president has just spoken, the hall is full, and people have flooded here. Campaigning is better now than it has ever been before with the ACDP."
