Zuma's tent collapses in storm

JOHANNESBURG - South Africa's President Jacob Zuma was forced to run for cover after a tent in which he was giving a speech collapsed.

Strong winds and rain tore through the marquee, where Mr Zuma was addressing a crowd for Reconciliation Day.

A video posted on social media by local reporters showed people scrambling for safety as the tent blew upwards and the president was rushed off stage.

There were no immediate reports of injuries during the storm, in Gopane in South Africa's North West province.
