PIETERMARITZBURG - The African National Congress (ANC) supporters have started arriving at the Harry Gwala stadium in Pietermaritzburg ahead of the party's Kwazulu-Natal election manifesto launch today.
The party's President Jacob Zuma is expected to deliver the keynote address and layout the ANC's plan of action for the August elections.
The ANC in KwaZulu-Natal is confident its supporters will fill the 12,000 seater stadium.

Zuma is likely to get a warm welcome where his party has the most supporters in the country.
He is expected to address an increase in what appears to be politically motivated murders in recent months.
Several ANC members have been killed in the province most recently here in Pietermaritzburg last week.
Zuma is also likely to call on supporters to back their local ward councilors, in light of recent violent protests over candidate lists which rocked Durban this past week.
