Johannesburg - Police on Thursday confirmed they had arrested yet another person in connection with "double voting", this time in Gauteng.
This comes after the KZN IEC confirmed that 20 people were arrested in the province for either allegedly voting more than once or trying but failing to do so.
According to the IEC's Ntombifuthi Masinga, 17 were arrested in Dannhauser, two more in Port Shepstone and one in Hluhluwe. The police placed the amount of those arrested in KZN at 19.
National police spokesperson Brigadier Vishnu Naidoo confirmed that the latest suspect was arrested in Douglasdale after trying to vote multiple times.
"These suspects are alleged to have contravened Section 88 (d) of the Electoral Act 73/1998 whereby a person tries to cast more votes than a person is entitled to.
