The former president was greeted by loud cheers and applause.

Residents there earlier spoke about the crippling effects of poor service delivery in the northern KwaZulu-Natal town.

Community members said the lack of basic services has severely affected households and businesses.

They were joined by Zuma's first wife, who voted before the former statesman’s arrival.

Sizakele Khumalo spoke to the media about the challenges in the area.
