#SiyanqobaRally: ANC supporters make their way to stadium
This is the ANC’s final push before South Africans head to the polls on Wednesday.
JOHANNESBURG - African National Congress (ANC) supporters are arriving at the Emirates Airline Park ahead of the party's national Siyanqoba rally.
This is the party's final push before South Africans head to the polls on Wednesday.
Following several smaller rallies across the country this year, the ANC has described today's event as the mother of all rallies.
With just three days to go until the municipal elections, the party says it's confident of its success.
Several provinces are also holding their own rallies today which are expected to be linked via satellite to the Siyanqoba rally.
Green, black and gold t-shirts have filled the streets of Johannesburg this morning as supporters walk to fill the Emirates Airline Park.
Later today, ANC President Jacob Zuma will give the final address.
Meanwhile, Zuma this week called on South Africans to vote for the ANC because it has superior policies compared to others parties and it's the party that brought freedom.
Zuma was on the campaign trail in Soweto yesterday and addressed supporters in Thokoza Park. The president said the ANC's policies are more advanced than other parties.
"The ANC still has superior policies to other parties."
He said people must vote for the ANC because of its good track record.
"We're doing things that were never done by anyone before and we've a programme and a plan for the country."
He told supporters the party is the only one in the country with the interests of black people at heart.
