Zuma bash fails to win coloured votes

Cape Town - Despite concerted efforts by the ANC to win the hearts of the Western Cape, coloured voters continued to shun the ANC and instead voted DA.

According to the Sunday Times, not even birthday cake at a recent party for President Jacob Zuma in Athlone could do the trick.

The party won only in black townships such as Khayelitsha while the DA swept the province – particularly Mitchells Plain, where in Westridge, the DA got 12 691 votes of the 18 900 total. Meanwhile in the affluent and mostly white suburbs, the DA garnered as much as 90% of the votes.

The final count showed the DA winning 59.2% of the provincial vote, followed by the ANC with 33.04%.

Gauteng

The ANC won the battle for Gauteng, the country's economic hub, but its support dropped in the province, according to preliminary results released on Saturday.

The governing party garnered 53.59% (2 348 564 votes) which was less than the 64.04% support it enjoyed in 2009.

This was the African National Congress's worst provincial performance in 2014.
