CAPE TOWN - President Jacob Zuma's entire Cabinet has been tasked with drumming up support in Cape Town ahead of the 103rd birthday celebrations of the African National Congress (ANC).

The ruling party has hired the 55,000 seater Cape Town Stadium for festivities on 10 January, which will include a keynote address by the president himself.

On Monday, ANC official Senzeni Zokwana kicked off his campaign with a walkabout in the Mother City.

Door-to-door campaigning in Delft was no easy task for the Agriculture Forestry and Fisheries Minister on Monday.

But the lukewarm reception did not put Zokwana off.

"Of course you will have those who say 'Zille Zille', you know. We are here to promote the ANC."

The minister has confirmed he'll be back in Cape Town on 5 January for another round of walkabouts.
