ANC Elections Head Fikile Mbalula credited the party's national elections win on Saturday to President Cyril Ramaphosa.

Mbalula said the ANC avoided a "slaughter" at the polls in part thanks to Ramaphosa.

The ANC was handed its sixth straight term to govern South Africa on what was nevertheless its worst electoral showing.

Although the party won a healthy majority with 57.5%, or 230 out of the 400 parliamentary seats, it represented 19 seats fewer than in 2014.
