“Sing, sing, sing,” they chanted.
Zuma giggled, shouted “Amandla,” and then broke out into “Yinde indlela”.
This was greeted with cheering and clapping from delegates.
Earlier, ANCYL national task team convenor Mzwandile Masina started rallying delegates in song ahead of Zuma’s arrival at the consultative conference.
“We love you Msholozi,” he shouted.
Delegates sang songs praising Zuma.
“Lead us, Zuma,” they sang in isiZulu.
Zuma arrived at the ANCYL conference surrounded by security and delegates started cheering and singing “Umshini Wami (bring me my machine gun)”.
Zuma stood on the stage singing along, smiling and clapping.
