ANC President Jacob Zuma was received with loud cheers by thousands of villagers at Bakenberg, the birthplace of Cope premier-elect and former Limpopo premier Sello Moloto.
In his address yesterday, Zuma pleaded withresidents to go to the polls on April 22 to vote for the ANC.
He said the ANC was different from other parties because it has a history of fighting for black people who had been marginalised for many years during the apartheid regime.
He said it was the ANC that changed the lives of the people, both the previously disadvantaged and the well-offs, for the better.
"I therefore ask you to vote for the ANC so that it can proceed in bringing to you free basic needs such as water, electricity, housing, free education and free health."
The rally was attended by, among others, former Limpopo premier Ngoako Ramatlhodi, ANC Women's League president Angie Motshekga, ANC provincial chairperson Cassel Mathale and Mathole Motshekga.
