President Jacob Zuma is expected to attend his first public event after surviving a motion of no confidence in Parliament on Tuesday.

The President will be speaking at a Women's Day commemoration in Kimberly.

According to EWN reporter, people have gathered and waiting for President Zuma to arrive.

Minister of Social development and leader of the ANCWL, Bathabile Dlamini is at this event together with her deputy Sisi Ntombela.

Other women present are Minister Maite Mashabane, Minister of Women, Susan Shabangu as well as minister Faith Muthambi.

They all seem to be in good spirits. You can see them interacting with the people here and taking pictures.

On Tuesday he briefly mentioned that it is not the first time the opposition tried to unseat him and certainly not the last, saying that will never happen, "he is far too strong for that".
