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.”


Kodwa said the ANC strategy to reclaim political power in the Western Cape was slowly but surely yielding positive results.

“We dare not take for granted the confidence the people continue to demonstrate in the movement. Ours is to redouble our efforts in delivering services to the people,” said Kodwa.

“We thank our volunteers, members and supporters who continued to work tirelessly and ensured this decisive victory for the ANC and the people of South Africa. We equally congratulate the Independent Electoral Commission for, once again, delivering the credible, free and fair elections.”
