JOHANNESBURG - Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi says if the turnout of today's campaign in Limpopo is anything to go by, then support for his party is growing.

Buthelezi campaigned in Louis Trichard, where his party will contest for the first time in history.

Buthelezi says he is pleased with the turnout.

"Not only in Limpopo but everywhere where I have been canvassing, it indicates that we'll do well because this is virgin grounds for me. I'm satisfied with the members of the IFP here."
