Supporters of African National Congress (ANC) deputy President Jacob Zuma are reshowing their support to their candidate on the second day of the ANC 52nd National Congress in Polokwane, 17 December 2007. Jacob Zuma, sacked by Mbeki as deputy head of state in 2005, is the hot favorite to overthrow the incumbent in a move which would severely dent the president's authority in his last two years as head of state.
