ANC leads in 14 KZN municipalities

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.

      Don't expect to the see the same result here when you get rid of JZ in Polokwane for the national elections... The Zulu's will turn back to the IFP if they see JZ overthrown.

      Ockert - 2011-05-19 13:51

      And next week its back to burning tyres ?

      Matt - 2011-05-19 13:55

      Strange how they have no money for food, yet can burn tyres which cost hundreds of Rands each

      Clinton - 2011-05-19 14:09

      They old tyres been burnt destroying the atmosphere

  • devils_advo - 2011-05-19 13:38

    Durban still has the DA in the lead.... Even if the ANCircus increase their percentage The MF will join with the DA. Bye Bye Shitcliffe

      Matt - 2011-05-19 13:40

      Yay! Goodbye Sutcliffe... good riddance!

      Matt - 2011-05-19 13:42

      Don't hold your breath... The map thing is misleading, and in general, shite...

      Wayne - 2011-05-19 13:51

      Hope you're right bru.

      Matt - 2011-05-19 13:53

      @ other Matt - tell me about it... they just said PE has contracted cANCer for sure, but the map says only half the votes are counted... right now I fear that Ekurhuleni will maintain its cANCer (and Ekurhuleni Municipality is 100% sh1t) and sadly not be cured till maybe 2014... but the map says 56.60% of votes are counted and yet it's been that way for hours now - I think the map updaters just gave up!

      Nathi123 - 2011-05-19 13:55

      Durban under DA? u guys are DREAMING NOW!

      KissTheBoer - 2011-05-19 13:57

      You must check times live its more accurate than this news24

      Matt - 2011-05-19 14:09

      Thanks @ Kisstheboer! Was starting to wonder about "The ANC is leading in Ekurhuleni (East Rand) with 56.60% of the 841 281 votes counted thus far." Does this mean that 56.60% of the votes are counted, or that they got 56.60% and the dude has terrible grammar?

      Matt - 2011-05-19 15:40


  • The Spear - 2011-05-19 13:40

    I think the IFP and Cope should stop this silliness and join the DA now. Together we can be so much stronger.

  • Matt - 2011-05-19 13:41

    That's OK, outside of Durban who really cares about the rest :-) now PMB can become even more bankrupt!

      KissTheBoer - 2011-05-19 13:58

      Durban ANC is leading check times live now or eNews, news24 is not accurate

      Matt - 2011-05-19 14:13

      I just saw that :-(

      Currie_Mafia - 2011-05-19 14:31

      Come now Matt...thinking like a "you know what"... I live in PMB...

      Matt - 2011-05-19 15:02

      @ Currie_Mafia - Msunduzi went bankrupt - and yet they're voting the same party back into power. It defies logic!

  • dangerfieldK - 2011-05-19 13:46

    Hope the DA wins eThekwini...

  • Mad man - 2011-05-19 13:47

    Well done comrades - morons can start to gang against the ANC, we are used to this kind of tunnel politics

      Fortune - 2011-05-19 13:58

      SHO comrade.

  • MM - 2011-05-19 13:48

    Well done ANC...lets hear the insults then...

  • Wayne - 2011-05-19 13:50

    Mike Sutcliffe must be plenty relieved. Now he can sit back again and ride the ANC gravy train to more riches while Dirtbin goes further down the chute.

      Matt - 2011-05-19 13:54

      Wayne, DA is leading in Durban :-)

      Wayne - 2011-05-19 14:11

      Matt that makes me very happy. I would do anything to see the little cretin being unseated. One wonders if his stooge friends in the ANC will support him when he's cast out into the political wilderness.

      Matt - 2011-05-19 14:14

      @ Wayne - sorry - is fkd up - according to timeslive: 1120: The ANC had 52.14% of the vote in the Durban metro, followed by the DA with 26.30% by 11am on Thursday. The ANC had 82 761 votes and the DA 41 743 votes as the count continued. YOU SUCK!!! Give us accurate counts!!!

      Wayne - 2011-05-19 15:58

      So ANC Mike can look forward to another few years of easy living...

  • Owami - 2011-05-19 13:54

    Thatha ANC, thatha!!!

  • Ingie - 2011-05-19 13:55

    Not worried about these towns mentioned as mainly ANC and black townships. Hope Durbs and surrounding areas get DA and then we can kick Mike Sutcliffe who has been stealing our money for all these years. As someone commented driving the luxury. Wonder how he can sleep at night.

  • Da@Ismile - 2011-05-19 13:57

    VIVA ANC,,, down Disaster Ahead (DA)

      Matt - 2011-05-19 14:23

      Ar$e Numbing Corruption Another Native Cadre Always Naai'ing Cities How many more acronyms are there :-)

  • DW - 2011-05-19 13:59

    Such a pity. The IFP has been delivering in quite a few municipalities in KZN. Now the ANC takes over and the rot will set in. Hopefully they wont do too much damage before the people realise it and vote IFP back in again next time.

  • sanette.hattingh - 2011-05-19 14:03

    Living in PMB (capital of KZN) I’m shocked that my fellow Maritzburgers are so blind to the corrupt blue light brigade.. Our municipality is bankrupt and we fired the whole municipality yet the majority keeps on voting for the ANC!! It’s crazy, our lovely old historical city looks like a rubbish dump yet VIVA ANC.. this just makes the UK so much more appealing.

      Matt - 2011-05-19 14:20

      Sanette, I wondered the same thing... but that's what you get when squatters flock to a town and then get the right to vote there... BTW don't even think of the UK, I'm from there and believe me it's a total sh1thole...

      Currie_Mafia - 2011-05-19 14:33

      PMB, Ward 28 in Msunduzi Municipality ( Previously ANC), NOW DA... my vote made a difference...

  • Blackpride - 2011-05-19 14:11

    Viva ANC Viva, Viva

      Ant - 2011-05-19 14:17

      VIVA ..really stands for Very Idiotic Voting Anc

      Matt - 2011-05-19 14:21

      @ Ant - he must be on a beetroot+garlic high

  • Matt - 2011-05-19 14:24

    1351: The ANC had obtained 49.64% of the vote (89 392 votes) in the Mangaung Metropolitan Municipality and the DA 44.61% (80 347) by Thursday afternoon. Hmm, coalition to unseat the ANC perhaps?

  • SP - 2011-05-19 14:26

    I feel sorry for people living in Kwa-Zulu Natal who want a better life for themselves and their children. The ANC's Midas touch turns everything to sh*t.

      Da@Ismile - 2011-05-19 14:45

      Feel Sorry for yrself.

  • Currie_Mafia - 2011-05-19 14:29

    Ward 28 in Msunduzi Municipality ( Previously ANC), NOW DA... my vote made a difference...

      Matt - 2011-05-19 15:04

      Nice... but the map shows the municipality is ANC... well my ward, 21 in Ekurhuleni, is now 67% DA, down from 71% last time. I voted ACDP... before the DA people chastise me, look at Primrose first :-) but alas, Ekurhuleni, from what I can gather on the CR@P map, is riddled with cANCer

  • Fudge321 - 2011-05-19 14:30

    Why do I read these comments? Most of you guys troll

      Da@Ismile - 2011-05-19 14:47

      If you can't answer that yourself, how can we bru?

  • avhasei - 2011-05-19 15:03
