Pretoria — President Jacob Zuma's scheduled visit to Nelspruit, Mpumalanga for a Siyahlola Presidential Monitoring Programme has been adversely delayed by bad weather conditions.

The visit will conclude with a community engagement session at the Bergvlam High School.
The visit is in line with the National Disability Awareness Month, which runs from 3 November to 3 December.
