2011-05-19 13:33

Durban - The ANC had won 14 municipalities in KwaZulu-Natal by midday on Thursday and the IFP two.

Results from only 16 municipalities had been finalised in the province by noon.

“We have audited results for the 16 municipalities so far and the ANC has won 14 of them,” said IEC provincial chief Mawethu Mosery.

There are a total of 61 municipalities in KwaZulu-Natal.

The Inkatha Freedom Party won the Mthonjaneni municipality incorporating Melmoth town, and Hlabisa municipality.

Those won by the ANC include Richmond, Ezinqoleni, Amajuba, Umzimkhulu, Kwa Sani, Danhauser, eMadlangeni, Newcastle, Endumeni and Umvoti.

But the ANC does not have an outright majority in Umvoti. It secured 10 seats compared to IFP's nine.

Mosery said the IEC hoped to have captured all results in the province by 20:00 on Thursday.
