ANC emerges victorious in Crucial KwaZulu-Natal Municipal by-elections

HV Nyambi

The African National Congress appreciates the continued support from the people of KwaZulu-Natal displayed during the by-elections held on Wednesday 4 April 2018. The ANC registered landslide victories in the Ward 16 in Umdoni Municipality and Ward 03 of Mkhambathini Municipality. The vacancies follow the passing away of ANC councilors. The ANC received 60.38% in Ward 16 of Umdoni and recorded 54.63% in Ward 03 of Mkhambathini. The results confirm the people's confidence in the governing party and their movement, the ANC. Although the ANC lost Ward 02 of Jozi Municipality, we will work harder to show our people that the ANC cares and that they can trust that we will always place their needs first.

As the ANC we do not take this support for granted and call on the elected public representatives to work harder to resolve our people's problems. Ours is to continue serving our people with humility, and we dare not fail on this. We appreciate our people's support and thank them for their continuing trust in the ANC. The ANC thanks the IEC for the hard-work it has done, especially by its volunteers, in the efficient manner it conducted the by-elections.

I thank you
