ANC wins by-elections in four provinces
Johannesburg – The African National Congress (ANC) on Thursday boasted that it has “emerged victorious” following the results of the by-elections held in four provinces.
On Wednesday five municipal wards were contested for in the Eastern Cape, Free State, Gauteng and the Western Cape.
“The ANC won Ward 5 in Bergrivier, Western Cape, from the Democratic Alliance (DA), and retained the highly contested Ward 124 in the City of Johannesburg,” said ANC National Spokesperson Zizi Kodwa.
“In addition, due to the unyielding and solid support the ANC continues to enjoy from the people of South Africa, the ANC retained Ward 7 in Ngqushwa, Eastern Cape, with over 80% votes.”
