ANC loses Nkandla by-election

The Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) snatched a ward from the ANC in a by-election in Nkandla in KwaZulu-Natal, where President Jacob Zuma’s private home is based, according to results released by the Independent Electoral Commission.

The IFP’s Thembinkosi Francis Nxumalo won 54.99% support.

The ward was previously held by the ANC, whose candidate, Bongumenzi Mninimuzi Ngcobo, won just under 50% of the vote in the last municipal by-elections.

Nkandla has been in the news recently because this is where Zuma’s private residence has recently been upgraded, at a reported cost of R200 million.

The matter is currently being investigated by a public works task team.

The Nkandla ward became vacant after the councillor died of natural causes.
