ANC thanks South Africans for their continued support in by-elections

28 September 2017

The African National Congress thanks the communities of Nkomazi Municipality, Mpumalanga, Dawid Kruiper Municipality, Northern Cape and Endumeni Municipality, KwaZulu-Natal for their support to the organization in the by-elections held in Ward 10, Ward 4 and Ward 3 in these municipalities respectively.

The ANC registered an overwhelming victory in Ward 10, Nkomazi winning 86.14% of the vote. We further retained our majority in Ward 4, Dawid Kruiper Municipality. The ANC is particularly pleased and equally appreciates the support we received in Ward 03, Endumeni which saw the support of the Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) reduced by 7%.

This support received in these and other by-elections, the ANC does not take for granted. As we thank the electorate for their continued support and confidence in their movement, we urge the ANC leadership in those wards to work closely with the community to ensure timeous delivery against their aspirations.

The ANC once again congratulates the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) for delivering the credible, free and fair by-elections held on Wednesday, 27 September 2017
