ANC president Jacob Zuma has repeated his claim that the ANC will rule "forever, until Jesus comes", and hit out at the newly formed Congress of the People saying its founders are "snakes" and "animals".

Zuma was speaking to a crowd of about 9000 people at the Langa stadium in Cape Town yesterday, wrapping up a four day roadshow designed to stem the trickle of ANC councillors defecting to the COP.

"They are going to endure rains and cold and will miss home. Let's open the doors so that those who are tired of being lied to by snakes can come back home," he said.

Earlier in the day, Zuma told about 1500 women in Guguletu that girls who fell pregnant at a young age, and pupils who loiter in the streets instead of attending school must "be caught and sent to faraway boarding schools by force until they get degrees".

"We are working towards free education" he said. "We must enter into a struggle to end teen pregnancies."

He said failure to educate young mothers condemned them to a lifetime of dependency on social grants.

"They take this money and do their nails and their hair with it and then leave their children with their grannies. Grannies are unable to enjoy their pensions because they must use that money to feed their grandchildren," said Zuma.

He also said he would review the laws which "handle criminals with kid gloves".

Zuma will continue electioneering today in the Eastern Cape.
