Johannesburg - Six United Christian Democratic Party (UCDP) candidates in the Tlokwe by-election have joined the ANC, spokesperson Kenny Morolong said on Wednesday.

"They have already resigned their candidature for the by-elections in Tlokwe," he said.

He said the ANC had also welcomed seven members from the Congress of the People (Cope).

"The new members will undergo a compulsory political school induction."

The new members from the UCDP were Collen Mabaso, Ntswaki Bokaba, Moeketsi Phakedi, Shadrack Dinko, Kgomotso Kgomongwe and Disebo Nhlapo.

Those from Cope were Evelyn Booysen, Elsie Mulligan, Sarah Slambert, Michelle Beukes, Hillary Visagie, Wynton Louw and Aubrey Fransman.

UCDP leader Simon Mfundisi said he was not aware of UCDP candidates joining the ANC.

"I do not know anything about this," he said.

A by-election is being held in Tlokwe on 18 September.
