ANC president Jacob Zuma's two daughters, dressed up in green and yellow colours, voted in Killarney, north of Johannesburg, yesterday.

Duduzile and Phumzile Zuma's dress code made it obvious who they would vote for.

Duduzile, who was always at her father's side during his countless court appearances, said her family was behind Zuma in every way.

Asked about the alleged tensions between her and her father's youngest wife Mantuli over who will be by his side at Mahlampandlovu, the presidential official residence in Pretoria, Duduzile exclaimed: "Who told you that? There is no such thing in our family! Battle? What battle?"

The 26-year-old said the family was unified and supported their father all the way.

Asked whether she would continue to be by her father's side during his presidency, she said: "'Anyone in the family would be there if required to. If it is not me, it would obviously be someone else. We function well as a family."

The two live in a flat just a few streets away from the Killarney Country Club, where Duduzile voted.

Phumzile, a first-time voter, said the experience was scary but exciting.

The 23-year-old voted earlier at the nearby Holy Family Preparatory school

"I was shocked to find that the ballot papers had such a long list of parties. Folding them before putting them in a box was also tricky. But I am glad I did it at last," she said.
