Pretoria - Claims have surfaced of dumped ballots being found in Lynnwood Ridge in Pretoria and Diepsloot. 

It seems most of the ballots were DA votes.

The IEC is trying to establish the authenticity of the ballot papers, reports EWN.

News24's Roy McKenzie reports there seemed to be some confusion on the part of the IEC earlier.

IEC says it’s unaware of dumped ballots in Pretoria, but will deal with it.

Sapa reported earlier that by 18:00 the ANC enjoyed an early lead Tshwane. Out of the 151 911 votes counted, the ANC won 93 397 (61.48 %) and the Democratic Alliance had 34 239, or 22.54%.
