Hundreds of ANC supporters arrive at Grand Parade #SONA2017

CAPE TOWN, February 9 (ANA) – Hundreds of African National Congress supporters were being bussed into the Cape Town city centre on Thursday ahead of the People’s Assembly, which coincides with President Jacob Zuma’s State-of-the-Nation Address (Sona).

Zuma was expected to join the People’s Assembly for a short while after his speech.

The group is chanting and singing songs claiming Zuma was part of the revolutionary struggle of the people while other political parties were not.

The Grand Parade, where the People’s Assembly is taking place, has been cordoned off. There’s a strong police presence and barbed wire will be rolled out to keep opposing groups from clashing – which happened during protests at last year’s SONA.
