An eleventh hour deal with “an old friend” helped the ANC retain the mayoral chain in Durban’s eThekwini Metro. 

ANC’s Mxolisi Kaunda, who received 113 of the 219 votes, was elected on Wednesday for a second stint as mayor after narrowly defeating DA’s candidate, Nicole Graham by nine votes. 

The man who delivered those nine votes was Abantu Batho Congress (ABC) leader, Philani “PG” Mavundla.
