Mbombela - Voters were surprised when they arrived to vote at a voting station in Driekoppies, Mpumalanga, on Wednesday morning, only to find that it was closed.
They had registered at the Bongani Holiness Union Church, but the Electoral Commission chose another venue two blocks away for the actual voting process.
Unaware of the change, some voters returned home, but others, like Make Sibiya, made a point of finding out what had happened.
Sibiya drove around asking for help.
An IEC official confirmed the new venue was at Emasontweni.
There are 92 voting stations in the wider Nkomazi area.
Queues were long at the Magewu primary school in nearby Sibayeni village.
Presiding officer Shadrack Masilela said that 160 people had voted in an hour.
Police and Tactical Response Team officers have been deployed to all voting stations.
Unlike at other voting stations in Nkomazi, no one wore political T-shirts at the Siboshwa tribal office voting station.
About 200 people had voted peacefully here within two hours.
At the entrance to the tribal office, Mozambican and local villagers sold vegetables and second hand clothing because Wednesdays and Thursdays are their usual market days.Download the app by visiting one of these stores.
