The ANC managed only three votes in the white Afrikaner enclave in the Northern Cape.

In March, Malema met Orania Movement president Carel Boshoff junior in Orania. After the meeting he hung ANC election posters along the town's main road.

The DA was voted into second place with 26 votes. Cope and the ACDP each received three votes. Two votes were spoilt. - Sapa
